ORLANDO, Fla. -- A Florida special prosecutor could still end up charging George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who has admitted shooting and killing an unarmed black teen.

But if she does, it'll be her own decision. The prosecutor decided today not to take the case to a grand jury that was supposed to meet tomorrow.

Angela Corey said she continues to investigate the case.

One Florida defense attorney says the prosecutor may be planning to charge Zimmerman with something other than first-degree murder, and wants to "maintain control" of the charges.
