Zimmerman, a 28-year-old neighborhood watch volunteer, was charged with second-degree murder for fatally shooting Martin, and could face life in prison if convicted. Martin, 17, was headed back to the home of his father's fiancée shortly after 6 p.m. on Feb. 26 returning from a trip to the convenience store. After an apparent confrontation between the teen and watchmen, Martin lay dead from a gunshot to the chest. Zimmerman admitted to police that he shot Martin, but claimed he acted in self-defense.
