SANFORD, Fla. -

Shellie Zimmerman has reportedly filed for divorce from George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watchman who was acquitted of second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin.

Thursday's report of the divorce from ABC News comes a week after Shellie Zimmerman said in an interview she "would have to think about" if she stayed married to George Zimmerman.

George Zimmerman's brother, Robert, told Local 6 he will be commenting on the report on Twitter. Local 6 has also reached out to Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara, but has not yet heard back.

Shellie Zimmerman pleaded guilty last week to a misdemeanor perjury charge for lying during a bail hearing following her husband's arrest for the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Martin in February 2012.

George Zimmerman made headlines again on Wednesday after Lake Mary police said they issued him a $256 speeding ticket the day before.

A jury found George Zimmerman not guilty of second-degree murder in July 2013.

No other information was immediately available.
