The three white men accused of killing Ahmaud Arbery have been found guilty of murder.
Gregory McMichael, 65; his son Travis McMichael, 35; and their neighbor William “Roddie” Bryan, 52, all faced trial together after being accused of shooting the 25-year-old, who they assumed was fleeing a burglary as he ran through a mostly white neighborhood near Brunswick on Feb. 23, 2020.
Prosecutor Linda Dunikoski said the three men wrongly assumed Arbery was up to no good before the murder.
she said in her closing arguments:
“They assumed he must have committed some crime that day. He’s running real fast down the street, right?”
The charges carry a minimum sentence of life in prison.
