In an exclusive interview with NBC News today, George Zimmerman’s wife, Shellie, discussed her recent altercation with her husband, and expressed doubts about the outcome of the Trayvon Martin verdict. 

Two weeks ago Zimmerman called police after her husband allegedly punched her father in the nose, smashed her iPad, and motioned toward what she believed was a gun. She says she “saw a look in his eyes I’ve never seen before” on that day.  She also said that she regrets not having pressed charges against Zimmerman, but was told by police that she would have been taken to jail if she did because she’s currently on probation after pleading guilty to perjury charges. 

In her interview, she also says she now has doubts about the Trayvon Martin verdict. 

“I think anyone would doubt that innocence. Because I don’t know the person I’ve been married to.” 

Zimmerman’s lawyer has been trying to serve her husband with divorce papers, but hasn’t been able to track him down
