(CNN) — Special prosecutor Angela Corey has decided against using a grand jury in the case involving the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, her office said Monday.
“The decision should not be considered a factor in the final determination of the case,” the office said in a statement.
The grand jury, set to convene Tuesday, was “previously scheduled by the former prosecutor,” the statement said.
Corey said the investigation into the case continues. The state attorney has maintained that a grand jury is not needed to file possible criminal charges against George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who killed the teen February 26.
