SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla.—A Florida man accused of shooting and killing an unarmed teenager will still be under a court’s travel restrictions.

George Zimmerman currently wears a GPS monitor and can only leave the county with the court’s permission.

Zimmerman asked the judge to loosen those restrictions because he is living in fear.

Tuesday, a judge denied his plea.

Zimmerman is accused of shooting and killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in February.

He has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and says he was acting in self-defense.
