Police Chief in Trayvon Martin Case Expected to Resign

The police chief who temporarily stepped aside last month over his department’s handling of the shooting death of Trayvon Martin is expected to resign Monday, according to city officials. Chief Bill Lee Jr. of the Sanford police department dismissed earlier calls for his resignation after questions were raised about why detectives did not immediately arrest George Zimmerman, the 28-year-old neighborhood watch volunteer who was released early Monday on bail while he awaits trial on second-degree murder charges.
