WASHINGTON (AP) — The parents of Trayvon Martin say charges against George Zimmerman in the fatal shooting their son would start the healing process, but they won’t stop fighting until he’s convicted.
Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, tells The Associated Press that right now she and Martin’s father “can’t get past our son being murdered and no one being arrested.” His father, Tracy Martin, says it will be very important to also get a conviction.
Their comments follow news that charges will be filed against Zimmerman in the Feb. 26 shooting in Florida. Zimmerman’s arrest also is expected soon.
The parents’ attorney, Ben Crump, says although the family wants an arrest, “nothing is going to bring Trayvon back.”
