Zimmerman Charged in Shooting

Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey announced Wednesday evening that George Zimmerman has been charged with second-degree murder of Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman was arrested Wednesday and in the custody of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, his new attorney, Mark O’Mara, told CNN. Corey said that it was her duty “to find the full truth” surrounding the February killing that has captured the nation’s attention for much of the last three weeks. Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon’s mother, spoke out earlier Wednesday, saying, “I know without a shadow of a doubt that justice will be served.”
