SANFORD, Florida (WKMG) -- The judge has revoked the bond of George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watchman charged with shooting and killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman must report to Seminole County jail by Sunday at 2:30 p.m.

The state filed the motion on Friday just before a hearing in Sanford discussing the release of more evidence in the case against Zimmerman.

Prosecutors say Zimmerman misled the court on his finances during a bail hearing that allowed his release on $150,000 bond. Zimmerman's attorney said several days later that he had discovered his client had raised more than $200,000 from a website. That money wasn't disclosed at the bond hearing.

Judge Kenneth Lester heard the argument at the evidence hearing because he said the matter was "very serious."

State prosecutors said on Friday Zimmerman's wife, Shelley, knew about the PayPal money from his website and lied at the bond hearing when she said she didn't know of it.

State prosecutors said Zimmerman also had another passport he didn't disclose to the court.

"The defendant lied to this court," said state prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda. O'Mara defended Zimmerman, saying he didn't deceive the court about his passport.

Zimmerman is pleading not guilty to second-degree murder and claims self-defense.
