SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — The man charged with second-degree murder in Trayvon Martin’s death has arrived at a Florida jail after turning himself in.

George Zimmerman was logged into the jail in Sanford on Wednesday night, hours after a special prosecutor announced the charge against him. He’s expected to make his first court appearance on Thursday.

Television cameras showed black SUVs pulling into a loading area, but the suspect himself wasn’t visible.

Zimmerman’s Attorney Mark O’Mara says that his client will plead not guilty. Zimmerman is being held without bond but O’Mara said he plans to ask for bail to be set.

Zimmerman has acknowledged shooting Martin but says it was in self-defense after the two got into a fight on Feb. 26.
