Zimmerman to appear in court again
George Zimmerman is set to appear again in court on the same day Trayvon Martin would have celebrated his 18th birthday. Zimmerman was charged with the second degree murder of seventeen-year-old Trayvon Martin. He shot the unarmed African-American teenager while he was walking through a gated Sanford community on the way to his father's house. According to Zimmerman, he was acting out of self defence. The neighbourhood watch leader's trial is set to begin in June.
