"Judge Denies Zimmerman’s Request For Unmonitored Travel, Lower Bond In Trayvon Martin Murder Trial"

At a pre-trial hearing Tuesday morning, a Florida judge denied motions to reduce George Zimmerman’s $1 million bond, and end his out-of-county travel restrictions and GPS monitoring. Zimmerman is accused of second-degree murder in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Defense attorneys unsuccessfully asked Judge Debra Nelson to reduce the restrictions placed on Zimmerman by a previous judge, who has since been removed from the case. The trial is scheduled to begin in June.
