A federal hate crime trial for father and son Gregory and Travis McMichael is scheduled to begin in February.
Travis McMichael, who pulled the trigger, and his father, Greg, have no chance for parole. A federal hate crimes trial remains in a case widely seen as racially motivated.
Georgia prosecutors have focused on testimony from law enforcement and neighbors in the trial of Greg and Travis McMichael and Roddie Bryan, accused of murdering Ahmaud Arbery.
Travis McMichael, his father, Gregory McMichael, and William "Roddie" Bryan face murder charges, accused of cornering and killing Arbery in a neighborhood in Glynn County, Ga.
Jury selection is in its third week in Georgia as attorneys question jurors in the murder trial of three men accused of killing Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old Black jogger.
Travis McMichael, his father, Gregory McMichael, and their friend William "Roddie" Bryan have pleaded not guilty in the 2020 killing of Arbery as he jogged in a residential neighborhood in Georgia.
Three white men are accused of murdering Ahmaud Arbery, a Black man shot and killed as he was jogging down a residential street after being chased by pickup trucks. Jury selection begins Monday.
Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man, was shot and killed as he jogged through a neighborhood near Brunswick, Ga. in 2020. Three white men in pick-up trucks pursued him and then confronted him.
"I'm relieved they'll stay behind bars," Arbery's mother said. She had asked a judge to keep the pair in jail, saying "Ahmaud wasn't allowed to go home. Ahmaud wasn't even allowed the chance to live."
