George Zimmerman In Police Custody

George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with murder in the killing of Trayvon Martin, surrendered himself to the Seminole County Jail in Sanford, Fla. Sunday, reports the Associated Press.

The surrender came two days after a judge revoked his bail. According to AP, Zimmerman's bail was revoked because the judge said he and his wife lied to the court about their finances so he could obtain a lower bond.

Attorney Mark O'Mara announced Sunday on his website that Zimmerman, 28, had arrived in Florida late Saturday evening ahead of his surrender. Zimmerman, who is charged with second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of the 17-year-old Martin, was ordered by a judge Friday to return to jail.
