SANFORD – George Zimmerman's wife, who is facing a perjury charge, has filed a witness list that includes her sister-in-law and brother-in-law, the couple who helped her husband set up a fund-raising website and manage the money that came flooding in.
Shellie Zimmerman is the wife of 29-year-old former Neighborhood Watch volunteer George Zimmerman, who is charged with murdering Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black 17-year-old, in Sanford Feb. 26, 2012.
She also is accused of a crime: perjury. Prosecutors contend she lied during her husband's April 20, 2012, bond hearing when she said told a judge they were broke.
At the time of the hearing, the website had raised more than $130,000 in just over two weeks, according to prosecution records.
In phone calls from the Seminole County Jail, Zimmerman directed his wife to move money from his bank account into hers, into his sister's and cash into a safety deposit box, according to prosecution records.
