George Zimmerman's Wife, Shellie, To File For Divorce, Says Attorney

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - George Zimmerman's wife, Shellie, is planning to file for divorce.

Robert Zimmerman, Jr. tweeted the news to his more than 24,000 followers just after 5 p.m: "According to Shellie's atty Kelly Sims - Shellie is preparing to file 4 divorce. Docs have not yet been filed in Seminole Cty. Pray 4 them."

The Associated Press reports that Sims has confirmed Shellie plans to end their six-year marriage.

George Zimmerman, 29, was acquitted of second-degree murder in the Feb. 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on July 13. The case made international news after it took police several weeks to arrest Zimmerman in the case.

Zimmerman was pulled over for speeding by a Fla. cop two days ago.

Zimmerman's wife, Shellie, has also had trouble with the law. On Aug. 28, she pleaded guilty to misdemeanor perjury and was sentenced to one year of probation. She had been accused of lying about the couple's financial situation when she testified at George Zimmerman's bond hearing in June 2012.

On the same day she pleaded guilty, Shellie Zimmerman told Good Morning, America that she would "think about" staying married to her husband.
