George Zimmerman’s estranged wife has revealed that she now has doubts over her husband’s innocence in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin last year.
Shellie Zimmerman, who stood by her husband throughout his trial and even lied to the court for him, spoke out on Thursday in her first interview since a domestic dispute between the couple this month.
In the latest twist in the ongoing Zimmerman saga, she told the Today show that she no longer feels like she can trust her husband or his version of events after how he has treated her.
‘I’m conflicted,’ she said. ‘I believe the evidence but this revelation in my life has helped me take the blinders off. I think anyone would doubt that innocence because I don’t know the person I’ve been married to.’
She added: ‘I have doubts but I also believe the evidence. I respect the jury’s decision.’
Shellie, 26, spoke to Matt Lauer nearly three weeks after she frantically called 911 claiming her husband had his hand on a gun and was threatening to shoot her and her father in Lake Mary, Florida. She claimed that Zimmerman had punched her father and smashed her iPad.
