Hours after a Florida judge set a $1 million bail for George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin case, his defense team issued an appeal for donations.

Zimmerman, 28, a neighborhood watch volunteer, faces second-degree murder charges in the fatal shooting of the unarmed black teenager.

His initial defense fund received more than $200,000 after the shooting in a Sanford, Fla., gated community Feb. 26. Zimmerman claimed self-defense in the killing of 17-year-old Martin.

Zimmerman was intially freed on $150,000 bond, but that was revoked after the court found that he and his wife, Sherrie, had attempted to deceive the court over their financial assets, particularly funds donated for his defense.
