Original Lawyers for Trayvon Martin's Shooter and Judge Withdraw From Case

In a dramatic turn of events last week in the Trayvon Martin case, lawyers for George Zimmerman, the shooter of the 17-year-old high school student, withdrew from the case, saying they lost contact with him. Later in the week, Zimmerman was taken into custody and charged with second-degree murder. On Wednesday, the judge presiding over the shooting case removed herself citing a conflict of interest as her husband works with an Orlando attorney, Mark NeJeme, who was first approached by Zimmerman’s family to represent the 28-year-old shooter. A bond hearing for Zimmerman is scheduled for Friday, April 20.
