Good morning! It's Monday, April 23. This is Christine Nelson in the newsroom right now sending you an email on the stories we're covering on WBTV News This Morning at 4:30 a.m.
NEW: George Zimmerman is no longer in jail. He posted bail and quietly left the Sanford, Fla. jail this morning. We obtained video of his release. Watch WBTV to see it and get all new details including what some speculate he was wearing under his big, bulky jacket.
Also, opening statements begin in the trial of former presidential candidate John Edwards. Our Kristen Hampton is live with details you haven't heard before on what is going to be revealed in court involving his relationship with mistress Rielle Hunter.
Plus, the Mooresville marine who received the emotional "welcome home" from his community had to leave the state again. We'll tell you why and, in case you missed it, we'll show a few more snippets of his homecoming. (Grab a tissue!)
