Source? The reason I ask is that Martin was not in one of the groups that would allow the feds to charge Zimmerman with Murder 2 (federal law enforcement officer, judge, etc...). That would mean that the murder charge would be a state charge.
The more likely scenario is that they've charged him with a civil rights violation, which is what they actually charged the LAPD officers with in the Rodney King incident.
