Jurors in the Ahmaud Arbery murder trial returned for a second day of deliberations Wednesday after failing to reach a swift verdict.
The jury spent more than six hours Tuesday reviewing the charges against the three white men accused of chasing and shooting Arbery, a black jogger running through their neighborhood near Brunswick, Ga.
Travis McMichael, 35, his father Gregory McMichael, 65, and their neighbor William “Roddie” Bryan, 52, have been charged with murder, aggravated assault and other crimes for the killing in the coastal suburb of Satilla Shores on Feb. 23, 2020.
The jurors worked through lunch as they deliberated Tuesday, then asked to break for the day soon after 6 p.m.
Prosecutors have asked the jury to find the defendants guilty
