Zimmerman delays filing for new bond hearing

- Associated Press - Tuesday, June 5, 2012

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — An attorney for the former neighborhood watch volunteer charged with killing Trayvon Martin is delaying his request for a new bond hearing.

George Zimmerman's attorney announced on his legal team's website Tuesday that he would put off filing a new bond motion. He offered no further explanation.

No one immediately returned a phone call to attorney Mark O'Mara's office.

Mr. O'Mara said a new bond hearing won't take place for several weeks, during which time Mr. Zimmerman will stay in jail.

Mr. Zimmerman returned to jail Sunday, two days after his $150,000 bond was revoked. Prosecutors say Mr. Zimmerman and his wife misled a judge about how much money they had to put up for the bond.

Mr. Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder and has pleaded not guilty.
