George Zimmerman can count down the hours of freedom he has left … because the neighborhood watch volunteer will finally be charged today for the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

According to various confirmed reports, Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey plans to officially announce the charges this afternoon. It is not immediately clear what charges Zimmerman will face.
