ORLANDO, Florida (AP) - A new website, allegedly launched by the parents of Trayvon Martin's shooter George Zimmerman, is soliciting donations to aide in the couple's living expenses.

Robert and Gladys Zimmerman left their central Florida home amid threats and public outcry after their son George Zimmerman's shooting of the unarmed black teenager in February.

Robert and his wife have remained in hiding, except for an appearance at his son's bond hearing last month. A lengthy letter posted on the website's homepage details how the family's difficult circumstances have increased since the shooting.

George Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and also remains hidden since posting $1 million bond. He also re-launched a website soliciting donations for his defense.

Messages left with his attorney weren't immediately returned.
