Less than two weeks before the trial of George Zimmerman for the murder of Trayvon Martin is set to begin, his defense team has announced that it is almost out of money.

On Wednesday, Zimmerman’s attorneys posted on their website that the defense fund now contains less than $5,000. In early January, the George Zimmerman Defense Fund had raised over $314,000 through an appeal on the crowdfunding site Kickstarter.

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in 17-year-old Martin’s February 2012 shooting. Zimmerman was the neighborhood watch coordinator for a Sanford, Florida gated community where Martin was temporarily staying. Zimmerman denies murder, claiming that Martin punched him repeatedly before he fatally shot him.
