George Zimmerman’s Wife: ‘I Have Received Hate Mail’

George Zimmerman’s wife told a Florida judge on Friday morning that she fears for her own safety, in part because she has received angry letters after her husband killed unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin. Because of that fear, she was allowed to testify by phone during Zimmerman’s bond hearing.

“I have received hate mail,” Shellie Zimmerman said during the hearing.

Shellie Zimmerman said she did not report the letters to police or prosecutors but she saved copies of them.
