Wife says Zimmerman unraveled since trial
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.
