A special prosecutor has decided not to use a grand jury in the Trayvon Martin case.
State Attorney Angela Corey’s decision is not to be considered a factor in whether charges are eventually brought against George Zimmerman, Corey’s office said in a statement.
The grand jury, which was previously scheduled by a previous prosecutor, was set to convene on Tuesday in Sanford, Fla.
That means the decision now rests solely with Corey.
Martin, a 17-year-old from Miami Gardens, was shot to death by Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, at a gated community in Sanford on Feb. 26.
