    George Michael Zimmerman, inmate #201200004452, is living in a cell with 67 square feet of floor space, is allowed to read the Bible and magazines, but has no access to TV, according to officials at the central Florida jail where he is being held.

    Zimmerman, charged with second-degree murder in the February 26 shooting death of Trayvon Martin, 17, in Sanford, is segregated from the general population at the John E. Polk Correctional Facility, according to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office.

    According to jail records, Zimmerman, 28, has purchased $79.84 in items at the facility’s commissary, leaving a balance of $41.16. He’s allowed to buy items once a week.

    The neighborhood watch volunteer’s shopping list included contact lens solution, Irish Spring soap, playing cards, puzzle books, Jolly Ranchers candy, two oranges and other snacks, the sheriff’s office said in a news release Thursday.
