SANFORD, Fla. -- A second bond hearing in the George Zimmerman case was held Friday morning, but no decision was made after nearly three hours.

Zimmerman is being held on a second-degree murder charge in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

A judge placed Zimmerman back in jail after information surfaced that more than $100,000 was donated to Zimmerman's personal website. The judge said Zimmerman lacked respect for the law when he ordered him to return to the Seminole County Jail.

Attorney Mark O'Mara said Zimmerman wanted to make a statement to the court. Prosecutors objected and said if Zimmerman spoke, they would want to cross-examine him. The judge decided that if Zimmerman wanted to speak, he should testify on the stand and open himself up for questioning. O'Mara and Zimmerman decided he wouldn't speak.

The hearing ended just after noon without a decision. It is not clear when the judge will decide whether Zimmerman will be allowed bond.
