(Newser) – The next phase of the George Zimmerman chronicles now hinges on a smashed iPad. Police investigating yesterday's domestic disturbance between Zimmerman and estranged wife Shellie say her iPad has video of their confrontation that could determine whether he (or she) faces any charges, reports the Orlando Sentinel.
