TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Florida's governor has appointed a new prosecutor to oversee the investigation into last month's shooting death of an unarmed black teenager.
Gov. Rick Scott late Thursday appointed Angela B. Corey to oversee the investigation into the death of Trayvon Martin.
She is the prosecutor for the Jacksonville area. Scott said this came after the local prosecutor for the central Florida county where the shooting happened, Norman Wolfinger, volunteered to recuse himself.
Martin's parents have complained that the 28-year-old shooter, George Zimmerman, has not been charged after he claimed self-defence.
