ORLANDO, Fla. - (AP) - The neighborhood watch volunteer who killed Trayvon Martin has left a Florida jail, less than 24 hours after a judge set his bond at $1 million. George Zimmerman left the Seminole County jail on Friday. He was wearing a white dress shirt and a jacket when he left. A judge granted Zimmerman bond Thursday for a second time. His previous $150,000 bond was revoked after prosecutors presented evidence that he had misled the court about his finances. Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in Martin's death.
