    APNewsBreak: Murder charge in Trayvon Martin case
    By BRENDAN FARRINGTON, AP
    21 minutes ago

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman has been arrested and faces a charge of second-degree murder in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press Wednesday.

    The official with knowledge of the case says that the charge against George Zimmerman will be announced at a news conference by special prosecutor Angela Corey at 6 p.m. Wednesday. The official says the 28-year-old Sanford man is in custody in Florida but wouldn't say where.

    A second-degree murder charge in Florida carries a maximum sentence of life in prison. It is typically charged when there is a fight or other confrontation that results in death and where there is no premeditated plan to kill someone...

    She is very professional and I am totally impressed. She is strong minded and it sounds as if she really knows her stuff!

    She worked hard for TRAYVON.........

    May God continue to bless her.

    I've been debating this semantic issue amongst my family....this is an odd one compared to many we follow, as GZ admitted the shooting, only claiming self defense. IMO self defense or whatever (IMO it was not) he shot a human and killed that human, that makes him a murderer in my book.

    Richard Kurtz told CNN's Nancy Grace on Wednesday that Martin had a gunshot wound to his upper chest, but any other injury would have been difficult to detect because an autopsy was performed on the teen's body before he received it.

    Tony, I don't know what was being done to the victim, Trayvon Martin while he screams, wails with a sound like he was being terrorized. Listening to that tape is brutal.

    Whatever was happening, it was very, very bad.

    Zimmerman also has a new attorney, Mark O'Mara, according to NeJame.

    I just wanted to add that I believe Trayvon has 2 sisters too. (I believe 1 half sister and a step sister.) Prayers for his entire family!!!!! Children should NOT have to deal with the murder of a sibling!!!

    I take that to mean that they were saying they didn't just decide to charge on a whim based on public pressure.

    They painstakingly examined all of the evidence to reach their decision.

    Fellow Websleuths member & Florida lawyer Richard Hornsby has a section on his website. Summary of what is needed for 1st, 2nd, 3rd murder & manslaughter. http://www.richardhornsby.com/crimes/homicide/

    I really thought it would be manslaughter. They must have found something in the new investigation to make a 2nd degree murder charge, imo.

    i think too much is being read into this statement. I would take it to mean that a complete and thorough review of all of the evidence was made and interviews/re-interviews were done, all of the facts were considered, thus a decision reached. If the decision was reached lightly, then to me it would sound like nothing was done once the sa office took the case and they went with their preconceived ideas that GZ was guilty. Hope I'm making sense.

    I dont know if you guys have seen thie but GZ is in CUSTODY.
    Women are Angels.
    And when someone breaks our wings,
    we simply continue to fly... on a broomstick.

    We're flexible like that.
