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

The hearing is set for the morning of June 29.

Zimmerman returned to jail Sunday because his $150,000 bond was revoked after prosecutors claimed he and his wife, Shellie, deceived the court during an April bond hearing.

At the hearing, Shellie Zimmerman testified that the couple had limited funds for bail because she was a full-time student and her husband wasn't working. 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 Sanford, Fla., gated community where Zimmerman lived. He's pleaded not guilty, claiming self-defense

    Did you see what CHRIS ROCK said about Obama? He said the blacks see the "whiteness" in him but they try to ignore it. The blacks are the ultimate racists race in this country, bar none.

        No Zimmerman killed a skittles toting thug. Guess the thug was going for a sugar high before committing more crime. Zimmerman stopped him.

    He should be denied bail for the perjury about not having money. His wife should have been arrested for lying under oath as well and she should be having her own bond hearing. Hope the Judge takes hard consideration in the lies and lack of credibility and that he was hiding a second passport to leave the country with.

      Nonsense. A man being hounded by media, attorneys, and politicians who had to leave an area quickly would not know what he had financially as well as leave things behind. His attorney stated what Zimmerman had there was no attempt to hide anything. Further it is getting really old to see and hear these financially power hungry politicians, attorneys, and media sensationalists try a lynch mob mentality while professing to be "impartial." Zimmerman was defending his life against a monster who tried to take it from him.

        A monster? Give me a break, and go cry your river of tears elsewhere. The only "monster" here is the gun-toting murdering coward Zimmerman.

          Trayvon was a monster who slammed Zimmerman's head into concrete. Trayvon was seen by eyewitnesses doing this act. Try to accept the reality of eyewitness testimony and not your own bias Jane and truth. Whine elsewhere.

    okat ladies and gentleman..... didn't you hear the conversation between Zimmerman and his wife about passport's? He has raised all this money and is now a flight risk.... he could flee at any time- making him appear guilty at the same time. He is better off in custody. I haven't judged weather he is guilty or not- just stating the obvious.

      If he was going to run, why didn't he? According to the prosecution, he had every opportunity to run.

      More power to him if he can escape this kangaroo court justice. He has already been condemned by the politically correct idiots and the black community, both which are looking to crucify him. He has no hope of a fair trial so he might as well save himself from this witch hunt.

          You are exactly what I was talking about. You condemn him before the trial without knowing the details. Justice in this country is based on innocent until proven guilty IN a court of law...not in the media or by self appointed judges like you.

      Baloney. Zimmerman could have run earlier. Try keeping an account of your finances and personal items while you are relocating and being hounded by media, third rate attorneys, and political want to bes who are exploiting this case for their own purposes. In real time, few people would know what they had. Further, his attorney came forward with the information and did not try to hide anything. It is getting really old to see just how easily people who should be impartial are being swayed by special interest groups. Justice for Zimmerman.
