George Zimmerman’s wife is raising questions about his innocence in the 2012 shooting of Trayvon Martin, as the couple’s marriage continues to publicly go sour.
“I think anyone would doubt that innocence, because I don’t know the person that I’ve been married to,“I have doubts,” she said, yet added, “I also believe the evidence” that led to his acquittal.
The Zimmerman saga took another turn this month when the couple got into a marital spat at George Zimmerman’s house in Lake Mary, Fla., a few days after Shellie Zimmerman filed for divorce. She had come to pick up some things, and he reportedly got into a fight with her father.
George Zimmerman told police that his wife had hit him with her Ipad; Shellie Zimmerman told the cops that her husband had put his hand on a gun beneath his shirt and said, “Step closer.” Police investigated, but ultimately neither side pressed charges.
“In hindsight, I should have [pressed charges], and I really regret that. “But I’m on probation, and the officers made it very clear that day that if I pressed charges, we were all going to go to jail, and I would have been the only one to stay there.”
