The case revolves around the Feb. 26 killing, which has set off a national firestorm because police declined to arrest Zimmerman after he claimed he was acting in self defense.

A neighborhood watch volunteer in a gated community in Sanford, Fla., Zimmerman was reportedly patrolling the area that night when he spotted Martin, 17, walking home from a convenience store.

Some sort of confrontation took place after that and Zimmerman, 28, ended up shooting and killing the teen. Zimmerman's family and attorneys have since said Martin had attacked him, but there was evidence that may not have been the case.
