Zimmerman arraignment set for May 29

The neighborhood watchman who shot and killed Miami Gardens teenager Trayvon Martin will remain in jail while awaiting formal arraignment on a charge of second-degree murder, a Seminole County judge ordered during a brief, first-appearance hearing Thursday afternoon. George Zimmerman, 28, appeared at the hearing, handcuffed and dressed in a blue prison jumpsuit, and said little except to indicate he understood his right to remain silent and the proceeding, which was presided over by Judge Mark E. Herr.
