ORLANDO, Fla. — A Florida judge has set bail at $1 million for neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman while he awaits trial on a second-degree murder charge.in the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Florida Judge Kenneth Lester 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 wasn’t working.
