ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A new bond hearing is set for George Zimmerman, the Florida neighborhood watch volunteer charged in the fatal shooting of an unarmed teenager.

The hearing is set for the morning of June 29.

Zimmerman returned to jail Sunday because his $150,000 bond was revoked after prosecutors claimed he and his wife, Shellie, deceived the court during an April bond hearing.

At the hearing, Shellie Zimmerman testified that the couple had limited funds for bail because she was a full-time student and her husband wasn't working. Prosecutors say Zimmerman actually had raised $135,000 in donations from a website he created.

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin during a confrontation in a Sanford, Fla., gated community where Zimmerman lived. He's pleaded not guilty, claiming self-defense.

    If you listen to the 911 call, you clearly hear someone screaming for help multiple times. it is clearly a child not a grown male. There is a pause than u hear a gunshot. this young man was executed. Another senseless murder of a young black male. To those who say .. so what black youth kill each other every day. I say this.. there is a black male adult who is pursuing a white youth. The police dispatch advises him to stop pursuing and allow the police to do their job. Instead the Black male continues his pursuit a fight insues, the white youth beats the black guys butt, black guy shoots the white youth. Are we even having this conversation? no, because this real life story has the overtones of pure racial hatred instead of unadulterated justice. Those individuals who donated money to george zimmermans cause should be ashamed but how could birds (Buzzards ) who flock together not think alike.
