A lawyer for George Zimmerman, the Florida man who killed the unarmed Trayvon Martin during a neighborhood watch patrol, said his client will plead not guilty to second degree murder charges announced Wednesday. Zimmerman, who is now in police custody in Seminole County, will also ask to be released on bond, said Mark O’Mara, Zimmerman’s new attorney. Zimmerman was charged by a special prosecutor after more than a month of nationwide protests because local authorities declined to arrest Zimmerman. He is due in court at 1:30 pm EST on Thursday.
