Killer of Trayvon Martin questioned over gun incident

10:38 am on 10 September 2013

Police have taken George Zimmerman in for questioning, after his former wife accused him of threatening her and her father with a gun.

She filed for divorce last week and was staying at her parents' home.

Since being acquitted, the former neighbourhood watch volunteer has been caught speeding twice, and has posted photographs of himself at the gun factory, which makes the weapon he used to shoot the teenager.

A Florida court cleared Mr Zimmerman of murder but the jury decision prompted protest marches across America.
