Zimmerman’s wife seeks life insurance policy

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — George Zimmerman’s wife is asking in divorce papers that he pay for a permanent life insurance policy with her named as the beneficiary.

Shellie Zimmerman asked in the petition released Friday that a judge order George Zimmerman to pay the premiums on the policy.

She also is seeking an equal distribution of their checking accounts, trusts, partnerships and any unknown assets.

She asked that a judge prevent him from selling off any property.

The petition says the couple separated a month after Zimmerman was acquitted in July of any crime for fatally shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
