During a press conference following Michael Dunn‘s murder trial, Florida state special prosecutor Angela Corey said he will be retried for the murder of 17-year-old Jordan Davis.

“We intend to fully push for a new trial….Justice for Jordan Davis is as important as it is for any victim,” said Corey.

Dunn, 47, has been found guilty of three counts of attempted second degree murder and one count of hurling a deadly missile. A mistrial was declared on the first-degree murder charge in the shooting death of 17-year old Jordan Davis.

The jury deliberated for four days and remained deadlocked on the 1st-degree murder charge and lesser charges, including second degree murder, manslaughter, justifiable homicide, or excusable homicide.

In essence, Dunn was found guilty of everything but murdering Jordan Davis.

Protesters have begun marching over to the prosecutor’s office and demanding Corey’s resignation for, what they feel, is her failure to get justice for Davis.

Corey was also the special prosecutor in the George Zimmerman murder trial.

Last year, Zimmerman was found not guilty of murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Both Martin and Davis were killed when they were 17-years-old.

February 16, would have been Davis’ 19th birthday. Trayvon Martin would have been 19-years-old on February 5.

In Zimmerman’s case, he could be heard on the 911 call saying that “these f***ing punks always get away” before Trayvon Martin was found dead in the wet grass of his father’s gated community.
