The neighborhood watch volunteer who killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin will soon learn whether he can be released from jail while he awaits trial on a second-degree murder charge.

Florida Judge Kenneth Lester says he'll rule Thursday whether to let George Zimmerman out on bond or keep him in jail.

Lester had 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.
