The father-and-son duo accused of gunning down Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia earlier this year were denied bond Friday as they await trial for the slaying, a report said.
The suspects, Travis McMichael and his father, Gregory McMichael, have been locked up since their arrest in May for the February shotgun killing of Arbery in Brunswick.
In court Friday, Judge Timothy Walmsley denied the pair bond because he said video of the shooting shows they took the law into their own hands with the killing, according to the AP.
“You can interpret the video in a number of different ways,” Walmsley said at the hearing.
“But the video tells me there’s a significant risk and danger to the community,” he added.
Attorneys for the two men, who tracked Arbery in a pickup truck before Travis shot him twice in the chest with a shotgun, have claimed they believed the 25-year-old was breaking into a house before the shooting.
