George Zimmerman Charged in Trayvon Martin Shooting (Updated)
A day after George Zimmerman's lawyers held a news conference to announce they were quitting as his legal counsel, special prosecutor Angela Corey charged Zimmerman with second-degree murder in the February 26 death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford.
Update: Zimmerman's new lawyer, Mark O'Mara, says he will ask a judge to let his client
out on bail, possibly as early as Thursday. O'Mara says Zimmerman will plead not guilty.
