ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say the wife of Trayvon Martin's shooter is being accused of lying to a judge about their finances during his bond hearing and faces one count of perjury.
An order issued Tuesday by assistant state attorney John Guy charged Shellie Zimmerman for knowingly making false statements during the April hearing. George Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in the shooting. He was granted $150,000 bond at that hearing and released.
The judge revoked that bond earlier this month after state attorneys argued that both Zimmerman and his wife had lied to the judge about their finances, especially about money raised from a website.
George Zimmerman is back in jail.
CFnews13 reports Shellie was booked into the John E. Polk Correctional Facility Tuesday on one count of perjury. And says deputies arrested the 25-year-old where she was living around 3:30 p.m.
