A preacher in Florida who shares the same name as the man who shot an unarmed teenager dead last year says he is being plagued by abusive phone calls.

George Zimmermann, 78, who has two ‘n’s in his surname unlike the man who shot Trayvon Martin, says he has received death threats and angry calls since his namesake, who is 29, was acquitted of second-degree murder earlier this month.

Now the elderly preacher from Deland, Volusia County, has called police for help in dealing with the calls, in which he has been told to ‘watch your back’ and ‘you’re a dead man’.

Mr Zimmermann says in one call he was told: ‘Hey [expletive] you’re the one who killed Trayvon Martin, when your [expletive] get out, you’re dead.
