(Newser) – George Zimmerman's wife is in jail now, too, at least until she posts bond. Florida police arrested 25-year-old Shellie Zimmerman today on a count of perjury and booked her into the John E. Polk Correctional Facility, reports Bay News 9. Both she and her husband were accused of lying to the court in April during his bond hearing about how much money they had, specifically about how much had been raised via a website for his defense bills in the Trayvon Martin shooting. Shellie Zimmerman is in the same jail as her husband, though she is expected to be out soon on $1,000 bond.
