George Zimmerman appeared in court in Florida Thursday morning, a day after being arrested and charged with second-degree murder for the killing of Trayvon Martin.

During the brief two-minute hearing the judge set an arraignment date of May 29. Zimmerman stood silently listening to the judge's instructions, only uttering "yes sir" once to a question from the judge.

Zimmerman remains in custody; his new lawyer Mark O'Mara said he will seek a bond hearing "in the next few weeks."
