New bond hearing set for George Zimmerman

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

The hearing is set for June 29 in a case that raised national questions about race and self-defense laws.

Zimmerman returned to jail Sunday when his $150,000 bond was revoked after prosecutors claimed he and his wife, Shellie, deceived the court during an April bond hearing. 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 gated community where Zimmerman lived. He has pleaded not guilty, claiming self-defense under the state’s “stand your ground” law.
