ORLANDO, Fla. -- The wife of Trayvon Martin's shooter was charged with perjury yesterday, accused of lying when she told a judge the couple had limited funds during a hearing that resulted in her husband being released on $150,000 bond.

Shellie Zimmerman, 25, was released on $1,000 bond. George Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in the teen's slaying and had been out on the bond after the April hearing.

On June 1, Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester revoked the bond and ordered Zimmerman returned to the Seminole County Jail. Lester, in a strongly worded ruling, said the couple lied about how much money they had.

An arrest affidavit for Shellie Zimmerman said records show that in April she transferred more than $85,500 from her bank account into her husband's account. It also said jail call records show that George Zimmerman instructed her to "pay off all the bills," including American Express and Sam's Club cards.

A state attorney investigator learned from credit union officials that she had transfer control of his account.
