Posted: Updated:

Authorities on Wednesday announced that George Zimmerman has been charged with second-degree murder in the shooting of Trayvon Martin.

After turning himself in, Zimmerman arrived at the county jail in Sanford, Florida late Wednesday. He will appear in court on Thursday, according to the AP, where he is expected to plead not guilty.

Zimmerman has said that he shot Martin out of self defense, a claim that has ignited a national debate over Florida's Stand Your Ground law and simliar laws that exist in other states.
