Florida state’s attorney Angela Corey announced this afternoon that George Zimmerman has been charged with second degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman turned himself in and is currently in custody. Corey declined to disclose where Zimmerman is being held, out of his safety as well as the safety of others.

As to the charge Zimmerman faces:

Under Florida law, second degree murder is the unlawful killing of a person when perpetrated by any act imminently dangerous to another and evincing a depraved mind, regardless of human life, although without any premeditated design to effect the death of any particular individual. The maximum sentence for the crime is life in prison.
