Zimmerman Bond Revoked

A judge in Sanford, Fla., revoked the bond for George Zimmerman, the man charged with second-degree murder in the shooting and killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in February, and he will have 48 hours to return to jail. Prosecutors said that Zimmerman’s wife lied about his finances and that he held two passports—making many people wonder if he would flee under a different passport. Zimmerman's lawyer said the issues were a “misunderstanding.” Both sides are seeking to have records in the case remain sealed, as they are worried about the safety of the witnesses. The media are seeking to have the records released.
