SANFORD, Fla. -- George Zimmerman, who faces second-degree murder charges in the death of Trayvon Martin, will get a new bond hearing on June 29.

Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer who shot and killed the unarmed 17-year-old black teenager in February in what he said was self-defense, had his bond revoked last week and was returned to jail.

Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester will preside over the bond hearing in Sanford, the court said in a statement Thursday.

Zimmerman, 28, returned to jail Sunday because his $150,000 bond was revoked after prosecutors claimed he and his wife, Shellie, deceived the court during an April bond hearing.

At the hearing, Shellie Zimmerman testified that the couple had limited funds for bail because she was a full-time student and her husband wasn't working.

Prosecutors say Zimmerman actually had raised $135,000 in donations from a website he created, the Associated Press reports.
