(CBS News) The parents of an unarmed Florida teenager fatally shot by a neighborhood watch volunteer in February said on “CBS This Morning” Thursday that they were “at ease,” “excited” and “overwhelmed” by the gunman’s arrest Wednesday on a murder charge.

Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, the mother and father of teenager Trayvon Martin, told Erica Hill, Gayle King and Charlie Rose how they felt knowing that George Zimmerman spent the night in a Florida jail after a special prosecutor charged him with second-degree murder in Martin’s death.

“I felt a little bit at ease knowing that he had been apprehended, that he had turned himself in,” said Tracy Martin, “and knowing that he wouldn’t be able to possess a firearm after being arrested any more, knowing that he wouldn’t be able to take another 17-year-old’s life.”
