Shellie Zimmerman the estranged wife of accused and acquitted murderer George Zimmerman has recently done an interview with Katie Couric where she accused her former husband of "behaving like a monster" and called him a "ticking time bomb." Zimmerman rose to infamy when he was placed on trial for the 2012 shooting of an unarmed 17-year-old boy. The nation was split in half over the death of Trayvon Martin, some claimed Zimmerman's fatal shooting of the boy was an act of racism. Others believed Zimmerman's claim of self-defense, saying the teen attacked Zimmerman.

"I don't know who George is anymore," Shellie Zimmerman told Couric. Shellie Zimmerman said her husband's behavior became unpredictable following his trial. Zimmerman describes her ex-husband as "a pacing lion." Shellie Zimmerman said in her interview that she has not seen her husband in a few months. Zimmerman left her husband after his behavior became too much for her to handle. Zimmerman said there was a time when she and her husband were happy and in love. "We were great friends and I thought he was a wonderful person - that's why I married him."

Shellie Zimmerman's interview with Katie Couric came three days after her ex was arrested for allegedly threatening his current girlfriend with a shotgun and then breaking a glass table during a domestic dispute. George Zimmerman was arrested on charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief. He has been released. "I hope there is no violence but he does seem like a ticking time bomb," Shellie Zimmerman said. "I know I'm certainly afraid. I just hope that he can get, maybe the help he needs to deal with his situation and that no one else gets hurt."
