Zimmerman Speaks: ‘I’m Sorry They Buried Their Child’
George Zimmerman, the Florida man accused of fatally shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, spoke out for the first time Wednesday night in an exclusive interview with Fox News anchor Sean Hannity.
Zimmerman, 28, appeared with his attorney, Mark O’Mara, to explain his self-defense claims and shed light on the night that Martin, who was unarmed, died back in February.
In a preview of the much-anticipated sit-down released by Fox News, Zimmerman says he would apologize to Martin’s parents if given the chance.
“I am sorry that they buried their child. I can’t imagine what it must feel like. And I pray for them daily,” he told Hannity.
Zimmerman remains free on bond while awaiting trial. He has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and has maintained that Martin attacked him.
