The Washington Post reports that the prosecutor in the Trayvon Martin case will charge George Zimmerman in the high-profile shooting.

Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey plans to announce as early as this afternoon that she is charging neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, according to a law enforcement official close to the investigation.

It was not immediately clear what charge Zimmerman will face.

Martin, 17 and unarmed, was shot and killed Feb. 26 by Zimmerman, who said he was acting in self defense. Police in Sanford, Fla., where the shooting took place, did not charge Zimmerman, citing the state’s “stand your ground” law.

Zimmerman just lost his lawyers yesterday, claiming bizarre behavior on the part of their client.

FUCKING FINALLY. Now we just have to *find* Zimmerman, because instead of going to jail and awaiting charges back in February when the crime was committed, he’s on the loose and even his lawyers can’t get in touch with him.

I’m saying right now to those in the Sanford area: Please, be peaceful and be careful tonight.
