(CNN) - A Florida judge revoked bond Friday for George Zimmerman, who is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin.
Seminole County Circuit Court Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. ordered Zimmerman to surrender within 48 hours.
Lester accused Zimmerman of having misrepresented how much money he had when his bond was originally set in April.
The decision came after prosecutors asked Lester to revoke the bond.
Prosecutors argued that Zimmerman "misrepresented, misled and deceived the court" during the April bond hearing not only about his family's financial circumstances but about whether he had a U.S. passport.
