Zimmerman’s Wife Arrested, Accused Of Perjury

(CNN) — George Zimmerman’s wife was arrested Tuesday afternoon for allegedly lying at his bond hearing about the couple’s finances.

Shellie N. Zimmerman, 25, faces a perjury charge, according to Jackie Barnard, spokeswoman for the State Attorney’s office for the Fourth Judicial District of Florida.

Shellie Zimmernan will be arraigned July 31, according to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office. She was being held on a $1,000 bond.

Her husband, 28, is accused in the February shooting death of Trayvon Martin, 17, in Sanford.

George Zimmerman had been free on bond for weeks until June 3, when he turned himself in to authorities in Seminole County.

In April, Zimmerman was charged with second-degree murder after the case was referred to a state attorney for a review. He was released from custody later that month after posting bail.

But on June 1, Seminole County Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. ordered Zimmerman back to jail, accusing the suspect of not being truthful about how much money he had access to when his bond was set months earlier.

At the time, his wife told the court under oath that the family was indigent. But prosecutors alleged that Zimmerman had $135,000.
