Special prosecutor Angela Corey says she
will not bring the Trayvon Martin shooting death before a grand jury.

Corey said Monday she continues to investigate the case and will not involve a grand jury set to meet Tuesday.

Corey says her decision to skip the grand jury shouldn't be considered a factor in determining whether charges will be filed against George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who has admitted to fatally shooting the unarmed Martin.

That means the decision now rests solely with Corey.

Meanwhile, The Meridian-Lauderdale County NAACP will hold a 'Walk for Justice' Monday evening at 6:30 at Bonita Lakes Park, to draw attention to the deaths of Martin and James Anderson, a man who was intentionally run over by a truck driven by a white teenager in Jackson, Miss. Deryl Dedmon pleaded guilty in that case and is serving two concurrent life sentences.

The NAACP says the walk is to show support for any case in which a crime has been committed and the case has not been reviewed and/or brought to trial.
