George Zimmerman arrested and charged with murder for shooting Trayvon Martin

Jailed: George Zimmerman is pictured Wednesday
 night in a mugshot taken
at Seminole County Correctional Facility


George Zimmerman has been arrested for murdering Trayvon Martin, charged in the fatal shooting of the unarmed 17-year-old, State Attorney Angela Corey announced on Wednesday. 
The second-degree murder charge means the 28-year-old neighborhood watch volunteer faces life in prison, if convicted.
The announcement means Corey doesn't buy Zimmerman's claim that he shot the teen in self-defense and instead knowingly killed him with a 'depraved mind'.
She said that Zimmerman turned himself in voluntarily this morning.
Corey opened her speech by discussing her first meeting with Trayvon Martin's parents, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton.
She said: 'It was less than three weeks ago that we told these sweet parents that we would get answers to their questions no matter where those answers would lead'.
Zimmerman was taken to the Seminole County Correctional facility in Sanford on Wednesday night.
Television cameras showed black SUVs pulling into a loading area at the facility, but Zimmerman himself wasn't visible.
The Rev Al Sharpton, appearing with Trayvon's parents after the charges were announced, warned against a 'rush to judgment'
