SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -

A judge ruled this afternoon that the perjury case against Shellie Zimmerman can proceed.

The wife of George Zimmerman was in a Seminole County courtroom for a hearing to determine whether prosecutors have the legal authority to put her on trial for lying.  She is accused of lying about the couple's finances during a bond hearing last year in her husband's second-degree murder case.  She claimed she had virtually no money, when, in fact, the couple had raised more than $100,000 in online donations. 

George Zimmerman was released on bond, but it was revoked when the raised funds came to light.  He was later allowed to post a much higher bail and was released.
