ORLANDO, Fla. -

Shellie Zimmerman, whose husband, George Zimmerman, is charged with murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, will be arraigned next week on perjury charges.

Judge Kenneth Lester ruled that Shellie Zimmerman lied about her and George Zimmerman's finances during a bond hearing.

The arraignment is scheduled for Tuesday.

Shellie Zimmerman was arrested and charged June 12 and released the same day after posting bond. Her appearance notice does not list an attorney.

George Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in Martin's shooting, claiming self-defense.

George Zimmerman was initially granted $150,000 bond and released.  Lester revoked that bond last month after state attorneys argued that both George Zimmerman and his wife had lied about money raised from a website.

George Zimmerman has since been freed again on a new $1 million bond.
