George Zimmerman: Wife has doubts about his innocence
George Zimmerman: Shellie Zimmerman now says she has doubts about her husband's innocence in the Trayvon Martin case. George Zimmerman is also being investigated for stealing a TV and couch from his in-laws' house.
The estranged wife of George Zimmerman, the Florida man who was acquitted of murder for the shooting of an unarmed teenager, said in an NBC TV interview on Thursday that she now doubted his innocence after standing by him during his trial.
In a case that drew widespread attention, Zimmerman was found not guilty in July after arguing that he acted in self defense when he killed Trayvon Martin in February 2012 in a Sanford, Florida, gated housing complex.
George and Shellie Zimmerman, who separated soon after the trial, were in the news earlier this month over a domestic dispute that is still being investigated by police.
Shellie Zimmerman was asked Thursday on the NBC Today show if, after her Sept. 9 dispute with her husband, she now doubted that he acted in self defense on the night that Martin was shot.
"I think anyone would doubt that innocence because I don't know the person that I've been married to," Shellie Zimmerman said in the interview.
But she added that she still believed the evidence in the case and denied that George Zimmerman racially profiled Martin before shooting him.
