George Zimmerman awaiting arraignment

George Zimmerman made his first court appearance and is now awaiting arraignment, which is set for next month.

If convicted the Florida watch volunteer who's charged with killing Trayvon Martin could spend life in prison.

We've learned Zimmerman's attorney is hoping for a bond hearing in the next couple of weeks.

But for now, a judge has ordered he remain in custody.

The 28-year-old made his first court appearance on Thursday for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

He plead not guilty to second degree murder charges.

Zimmerman turned himself in to police on Wednesday after Florida's special prosecutor announced charges against him.

A law enforcement official says Zimmerman wept for hours his first night in jail. He was isolated in protective custody and under constant watch.

Zimmerman's arraignment has been set for May 29th. His attorney says he is worried about getting a fair trial in Sanford.
