More from Fox News:
URGENT: A judge on Friday revoked the bond of the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin and ordered him returned to jail within 48 hours.
Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester said that George Zimmerman and his wife, Shellie, misled the court about how much money they had available when his bond was set for $150,000 in April. Prosecutors claim Zimmerman had $135,000 available that had been raised by a website he set up.
Zimmerman’s wife testified at the bond hearing that they had limited funds available since she was a nursing student and Zimmerman wasn’t working.
“He can’t sit back and obtain the benefit of a lower bond based upon those material falsehoods,” Lester said.
Defense attorney Mark O’Mara said the fact that Zimmerman and his wife never used the money for anything indicated “there was no deceit.”
Prosecutor Bernie De la Rionda described the Zimmermans’ testimony as “misleading.”

Update: The Twitter lynch mob begins again. When the news broke that George Zimmerman’s bond was revoked and he had to surrender within 48 hours, the lynch mob came out in force. Some of these lovers of due process wish to kill Zimmerman themselves, while others want Zimmerman to commit suicide.

Zimmerman needs to stay in jail, or someone on the street is going to kill him before he ever even makes it to trial. #realtalk
