After two days of deliberations, jurors in the trial of the three men charged in the killing of Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia announced Wednesday afternoon that they have reached a verdict.
A Fox News report explains the case:
Father and son Greg and Travis McMichael grabbed guns and pursued Arbery in a pickup truck after seeing the 25-year-old Black man running in their neighborhood in the Georgia port city of Brunswick in February 2020. Neighbor William “Roddie” Bryan recorded cellphone video as he joined the pursuit. All three defendants are white.
A nine-count indictment charges all three with one count of malice murder, four counts of felony murder, two counts of aggravated assault, one count of false imprisonment and one count of criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment.
The verdicts were announced as follows:
- Travis McMichael – GUILTY on all counts
- Gregory McMichael – NOT GUILTY on count 1, GUILTY on counts 2-9
- William R. Bryan – NOT GUILTY 1-2, 4, 6, 8, GUILTY 3, 5, 7, 9
