(USA TODAY) - A Florida judge Thursday set a $1 million bail for George Zimmerman, who is charged with fatally shooting Trayvon Martin, USA TODAY's Yamiche Alcindor reports.
Zimmerman would be required to put up 10% to be freed. It was not immediately clear how long it would take for him to leave jail.
Update at 11:52 a.m. ET: The judge ruled that Zimmerman must remain in Seminole county and be subject to electronic monitoring at his own expense.
Update at 11:41 a.m. ET:The Sentinel notes that Zimmerman's lawyer, Mark O'Mara, has said that his client's legal defense fund has a balance of $211,000, which would more than meet the 10% required to put up a $1 million bond.
Update at 11:34 a.m. ET: Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. set a $1 million bond for George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin case, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Original post: Lester canceled an earlier $150,000 bond for Zimmerman and ordered him back to jail after the defendant, and his wife, were accused of deceiving the court over the size of their financial assets.
Zimmerman's wife, Sherrie, is charged with perjury over the issue.
Zimmerman, 28, claims self-defense in the killing of the 17-year-old in a gated community in Sanford, Fla., on Feb. 26.
