George Zimmerman Makes First Court Appearance

George Zimmerman, the Florida man accused of killing unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin, made his first appearance Thursday afternoon in a Seminole County, Fla., courtroom.

Dressed in blue jail jumpsuit, Zimmerman acknowledged he had an attorney but said nothing else. The appearance came a day after he was charged with second-degree murder in the killing.

The judge set his arraignment for May 29. That’s when he’s expected to plead not guilty to the charge.
