George Zimmerman leaves Florida jail on $1 million bond

ORLANDO, Florida (AP) -- The neighborhood watch volunteer who killed black teenager Trayvon Martin has left a Florida jail, less than 24 hours after a judge set his bond at $1 million.

George Zimmerman left the Seminole County jail on Friday. He was wearing a white dress shirt and a jacket when he left.

A judge granted Zimmerman bond Thursday for a second time. His previous $150,000 bond was revoked after prosecutors presented evidence that he had misled the court about his finances.

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in Martin's death. The case stoked racial tensions and provoked nationwide protests.
