It is the case that has captured a nation, and divided one on racial undertones. Today, everything came to a head when George Zimmerman turned himself into police for the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin.
State Attorney Angela Corey announced today, that Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder and he could face a life in prison if convicted
The announcement means Corey doesn’t buy Zimmerman’s claim that he shot the teen in self-defense and instead knowingly killed him with a “depraved mind”.
Corey opened her speech by discussing her first meeting with Trayvon Martin’s parents, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton.
She said: “It was less than three weeks ago that we told these sweet parents that we would get answers to their questions no matter where those answers would lead”.
While Corey refused to reveal where Zimmerman is being held, ABC News quickly reported that he is being held at the Orange County Jail.
And what does the future hold for Zimmerman? Watch this clip to find out….
