Special prosecutor Angela Corey has charged George Zimmerman with second-degree murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Corey's decision finally brings to Sanford, Florida, what his family had long desired: court justice for their son.

Police had refused to arrest Zimmerman, who claimed self-defense. But the facts of the case and Zimmerman's claims will now be tested in a court of law.

Until now, much has been speculated but little confirmed about the minutes before a young life was taken.

A court trial will bring justice. It will give prosecutors an opportunity to prove whether a murder took place. And it will give Zimmerman an opportunity to defend his innocence.
