Wife says Zim­mer­man un­rav­eled since trial

The Washington Times Daily - - Nation -

OR­LANDO | The es­tranged wife of Ge­orge Zim­mer­man said Thurs­day she thinks her hus­band has un­rav­eled since he was ac­quit­ted in the fatal shoot­ing of Trayvon Martin.

“I don’t know who Ge­orge is any­more,” Shel­lie Zim­mer­man said on Katie Couric’s show, “Katie.” Af­ter his mur­der trial, he be­came un­pre­dictable and “a pacing lion.”

“I like to think I mar­ried a per­son who was a good per­son, and go­ing through the past year and a half, I don’t know how that changes a per­son, or how a per­son’s spirit breaks, but it cer­tainly seems that’s what hap­pened to him.”

Later, she said: “He does seem like a tick­ing time bomb.”

Mrs. Zim­mer­man said she doesn’t think her hus­band in­tended to kill the 17-year-old in Fe­bru­ary 2012. Mr. Zim­mer­man has said he fired in self-de­fense.
