Florida resident George Zimmerman was released on $150,000 bond on Monday morning to await trial for the second-degree murder in the February shooting death of Trayvon Martin, reported the Washington Post.
He will be required to wear an electronic monitoring device until his trial.
The Post also reported that later that same day, the Sanford City Council rejected Police Chief Bill Lee’s resignation. Lee has been facing harsh criticism for his handling of the case.
