Ahmaud Arbery: Three U.S Men Guilty of Murdering Black Jogger

by Kunle Awosiyan

A mainly white jury of 12 people have found Three white men guilty of killing a black jogger last year in a case that became a rallying cry to racial justice protesters.

Ahmaud Arbery, 25, was shot on 23 February 2020 in a confrontation with Travis and Gregory McMichael and their neighbour, William Bryan.

The defendants said they acted in self-defence during a citizen’s arrest; prosecutors said race was a factor.

The men now face minimum sentences of life in prison.

The trio were found guilty of murder, aggravated assault, false imprisonment and criminal intent to commit a felony.
