Three Men Indicted on Murder Charges in Ahmaud Arbery’s Killing

A prosecutor on Wednesday announced that three men have been indicted on murder charges in last February’s killing of Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia.

Prosecutor Joyette Holmes says a Glynn County grand jury has indicted Travis McMichael, Greg McMichael and William “Roddie” Bryan Jr. on charges that include malice and felony murder, in the Arbrey’s death.

Arbery was shot of death on Feb. 23, when the Greg and Travis McMichael, a white father and son, pursued the 25-year-old Black man, who was jogging in their neighborhood. Greg McMichael told police that he suspected Arbery was a burglar, and that Arbery attacked his son before being shot.

Bryan, who lives in the same community, said he saw the McMichaels driving by and decided to join the chase, a Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent testified earlier this month.

The McMichaels were arrested May 7, two days after Bryan’s cellphone video appeared online.

Bryan was subsequently arrested on May 22. An arrest warrant said that he tried “to confine and detain” Arbery without legal authority by “utilizing his vehicle on multiple occasions” before the man was shot.

In addition to malice murder and felony murder charges, the McMichaels and Bryan are each charged with two counts of aggravated assault and one count each of false imprisonment and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment.
