"Thank you from my heart to your heart."

Trayvon Martin, left, 17, was fatally shot by George Zimmerman. A new witness has claimed Martin did attack Zimmerman before he was shot.

After turning himself in and subsequently being charged with second degree murder, George Zimmerman has been transported to the Seminole County Criminal Justice Center, according to CNN. He has reportedly been "troubled," according to his attorney Mark O'Mara - an understandable reaction, given the circumstances:

Trayvon Martin's family, meanwhile, is ecstatic at the news of the arrest:

Martin's parents spoke after Corey's announcement.

"We simply wanted an arrest; we wanted nothing more, nothing less," said Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton. "We just wanted an arrest, and we got it and I say thank you, thank you Lord, thank you Jesus."

Martin's father, Tracy, said, "we will continue to walk by faith, we will continue to hold hands on this journey. White, black, Hispanic, Latino.... We will march until the right thing is done."
