The Trayvon Martin shooting will finally head for a courtroom now that Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey has decided to charge George Zimmerman in the February 26th shooting of Trayvon Martin. The Washington Post's Sari Horwitz reports that Corey will hold a press conference to announce the charges, but so far none are known.
NBC News and other outlets are reporting that the conference will be held tonight at 6pm EST. Associated Press' Kyle Hightower and Brendan Farrington didn't have much to add, but they spoke to a law enforcement official "with knowledge of the investigation," who confirmed that the charges would be announced this evening. Both reports tiptoed around the topic of police tracking down Zimmerman to arrest him when the time comes, a task that seems more and more daunting by the day.
Miami Herald reporter Frances Robles tweets that Zimmerman will face only one charge. So far, Zimmerman has not been charged in Sanford, Florida, where the crime took place because of the state's "stand your ground" law.
