2nd Degree Murder Charge For Zimmerman

Special Prosecutor Angela Corey announced this evening that she's charged George Zimmerman with Second Degree Murder in the killing of Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman turned himself into authorities earlier today and is being held somewhere in the state of Florida according to Corey.

We do not prosecute by public pressure or by petition, we prosecute based on the facts of any given case... We don't discuss the evidence of the case. It would be improper to do so.

Zimmerman could be sentenced to life in prison on a second degree murder conviction.
