The neighborhood watch volunteer who killed Trayvon Martin can be released from jail while he awaits trial on a second-degree murder
charge.

A Florida judge on Thursday granted bond for a second time to George Zimmerman. Bail was set at $1 million.

Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester had revoked Zimmerman's $150,000 bond last month after prosecutors told the judge Zimmerman and his
wife misled the court about how much money they had during an April
bond hearing.

Prosecutors said a website Zimmerman created for his legal defense had raised $135,000 at the time of his first bond hearing.
Zimmerman and his wife did not mention the money then, and Shellie
Zimmerman even said the couple had limited resources because she was a student and he wasn't working.
