Jurors reach verdict in Ahmaud Arbery trial


Jurors have reached a verdict in the racially charged, high-profile trial of the three white men accused of killing black jogger Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia.

The defendants — Travis McMichael, his father, Gregory McMichael, and their neighbor William “Roddie” Bryan Jr. — are charged with murder, false imprisonment and other felony offenses in the shooting of Arbery, 25, who was jogging through their neighborhood just outside the Georgia port city of Brunswick on Feb. 23, 2020.

Defense lawyers have contended that the three men were trying to make a lawful citizen’s arrest against Arbery, who they believed had been burglarizing a local under-construction home when Gregory spotted him looking around inside it.
