Weather Alert


Record cold is possible this morning as we head down close to zero for a low. This would break a record of 2 set in 1960. Also watch for areas of freezing fog near the rivers as this bitter cold air interacts with the warmer river water. This fog could make for slick spots on roads next to area rivers.

Girlfriend wants charges dropped against George Zimmerman

Updated: Tuesday, December 10 2013, 09:55 AM EST
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Prosecutors could legally continue to pursue a domestic violence case against George Zimmerman if they wanted, despite a signed affidavit from his girlfriend asking them not to.

Zimmerman presented the affidavit to a judge Monday as part of a request to change the terms of his bond so he can have contact with girlfriend Samantha Scheibe. A hearing on the motion will be held later.

Lynne Bumpus Hooper is a spokeswoman for the State Attorney's Office. She said in an email Monday that prosecutors can and have gone on in domestic cases without the victim's cooperation. But she also said a case becomes more difficult to prove if prosecutors don't have a victim's testimony or if the victim is the only witness.Girlfriend wants charges dropped against George Zimmerman
