The Trayvon Martin shooting death case won't go to a Florida grand jury, the special prosecutor appointed to handle the investigation said Monday.
State Attorney Angela Corey said she continues to investigate the case and will not involve a grand jury that was previously set to meet on Tuesday.
That means the decision on whether to file charges against George Zimmerman rests with her, the AP reported.
Corey said her decision shouldn't be considered an indicator on whether charges would eventually brought against Zimmerman, NBC Miami reported.
Martin, 17, was unarmed when shot dead by Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, Feb. 26 in Sanford. Zimmerman maintains he was acting in self-defense.
