Shellie Zimmerman, wife of George Zimmerman

UPDATE: 9:37 P.M. EST

Shellie Zimmerman was released on $1,000 bond after being charged with perjury this afternoon, reports FOX News.

An arrest affidavit for Shellie Zimmerman said that records show in April she transferred more than $85,500 from her bank account into her husband’s account. The affidavit also said that jail call records show that George Zimmerman instructed her to “pay off all the bills,” including an American Express and Sam’s Club card.

Shellie Zimmerman, wife of George Zimmerman, 28, the man charged with the murder of  17-year-old Trayvon Martin, has been arrested on perjury charges, reports the Orlando Sentinel.

According to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were alerted by prosecutors that a warrant had been issued for Shellie Zimmerman, 25. She was arrested about 3:30 p.m. “at the location she was residing in Seminole County,” deputies said in a statement.

She was booked on a perjury charge, with bond set at $1,000. She is currently “in the process of posting bond,” deputies said.

As previously reported by NewsOne, Prosecutor Bernie De la Rionda presented Judge Ken Lester with a partial transcript of telephone conversations Zimmerman had with his wife from jail. Discussing the amount of money they had, Zimmerman spoke in code to tell his wife how to make fund transfers. The code referred to amounts of “$15″ in place of “$150,000.”

When Shellie Zimmerman was asked at the bond hearing how much money was raised from the website, she said, “Currently, I do not know.”

Explaining why he was taking measures against the Zimmermans, including revoking his $150,000 bail, Judge Lester had this to say:

“It was apparent that Zimmerman’s wife had lied under oath, and clear that Zimmerman does not properly respect the law.”
