George Zimmerman Was ‘Swollen And Cut’ Day After Killing Trayvon Martin

George Zimmerman’s father told a Florida judge on Friday morning that his son appeared to be badly injured the day after killing unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin.

“His face was swollen quite a bit,” Robert Zimmerman Sr., said during his son’s bond hearing. “He had a protective cover over his nose. His face was swollen and cut and he had gashes on the back of his head.”

George Zimmerman told authorities he was acting in self-defense when he killed Martin.
