Trayvon Martin: Fla. Prosecutor Charges George Zimmerman with Second Degree Murder; Zimmerman in Custody, but Long Road Ahead

The Florida special prosecutor, Angela Corey, has decided to charge George Zimmerman with second-degree murder for the death of Trayvon Martin. Mr. Zimmerman is in custody as an arrest warrant was also issued against him.

Mr. Martin’s family has expressed thanks for the developments; however, there is a lot of work ahead to prepare for and go through a trial. The possibility of the State not being able to prove its murder case beyond a reasonable doubt remains. But at least the system took notice to investigate the circumstances that resulted in Mr. Martin being shot and killed.
