Trayvon Martin’s killer is going to be charged

It’s unclear what charges George Zimmerman will face from Florida’s special prosecutor, Angela Corey. She’ll announce them at about 4 p.m. our time. The Miami Herald has indicated it will only be one charge.

Yesterday, Zimmerman’s lawyers dropped him. They said they’d lost contact with him, which concerns Martin’s parents who fear he may have fled.

Zimmerman also posted a statement about the shooting yesterday on his website. He solicited funds for his defense, and said he’d been forced to leave his home and family, “ultimately, my entire life.”
