A Sanford judge today ordered George Zimmerman, the Neighborhood Watch volunteer who shot and killed Trayvon Martin, released on $1 million bail but called him a manipulator and said it appeared the defendant had been preparing to flee the country.

It was not immediately clear how long it would take the 28-year-old Zimmerman to arrange his release.

Defense attorney Mark O'Mara said Friday that Zimmerman's legal defense fund had a balance of $211,000, more than enough to cover the 10-percent non-refundable portion charged by most bonding companies.

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman says he killed Martin in self-defense on Feb 26, 2012.
