ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The neighborhood watch leader charged with killing Trayvon Martin is getting another chance to convince a judge to let him out on bond.
George Zimmerman is in jail awaiting trial on a second-degree murder charge for the fatal February shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman was released on $150,000 bond in April, but the judge revoked the bond after prosecutors presented evidence that Zimmerman and his wife had misled the court about how much money they had.
He has a second bond hearing Friday.
Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester could decide during a hearing to release Zimmerman on bond or keep him in jail until his trial.
