ORLANDO, Florida (AP) - George Zimmerman is asking a judge to set aside a default judgment for his wife in their on-going divorce proceeding, and has filed a countersuit against her.
Zimmerman made the requests in a response filed late last week.
Shellie Zimmerman filed for divorce in September and served him with a divorce papers while he was in jail on a since-dropped domestic violence case involving a former girlfriend. He says they became lost in jail and he was unable to respond until now.
The countersuit asks that any personal property distribution be decided by the court, and that he and Shellie Zimmerman share in any debt incurred during their marriage.
Zimmerman, a former neighborhood watch volunteer, was acquitted last year in the 2012 shooting of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin.
