(RNN) - Thousands of people marched in the streets across the country this week, protesting the acquittal of George Zimmerman.

Zimmerman was accused of killing teenager Trayvon Martin. The six-person all female jury found Zimmerman not guilty of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges. Protestors say justice was not served for Martin.

Attorney General Eric Holder says the justice department is reviewing the case and may file federal charges against Zimmerman in the future.

Actor Cory Monteith, known for his role on the FOX show Glee, was found dead in his hotel room in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Autopsy results show Monteith had heroin and alcohol in his system when he died.

Hostess Brands snack cakes, including the iconic Twinkie, are back on store shelves after a nine-month hiatus. Hostess declared bankruptcy late last year.
