Closing arguments continue in Ahmaud Arbery trial


Prosecutors on Tuesday made their case before the jury one last time ahead of deliberations in the high-profile trial of the three white men accused of killing Ahmaud Arbery.

Gregory McMichael, 65, his son Travis McMichael, 35, and their neighbor William “Roddie” Bryan, 52, are charged with murder, and other crimes in the shooting of Arbery, 25, a black jogger whom they suspected of committing a burglary in their neighborhood near Brunswick, Georgia.

The prosecution argued that the men had no right to try to detain Arbery under a citizen’s arrest because they had no knowledge that he committed a crime on Feb. 23, 2020.
