(CBS/AP) SANFORD, Fla. - George Zimmerman made his first appearance in court Thursday in the case of the shooting death of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin.
Wearing a blue jumpsuit, Zimmerman stood quietly as the judge read instruction's to his lawyer, Mark O'Mara. Zimmerman did not speak.
An arraignment date of May 29 was set. At a press conference following the court appearance, O'Mara said bond will be set "in the next few weeks." Zimmerman is expected to enter a not guilty plea. O'Mara also said they still have to figure out a place for Zimmerman "to go safely" if he is released ahead of trial, which they are still working on.
Prosecutors face steep hurdles to win a second-degree murder conviction against Zimmerman, experts say.
