Trial closing arguments begin in murder case

BRUNSWICK, Ga. — Ahmaud Arbery was “under attack” when three white men saw him running in a small, coastal neighborhood and hopped in pickup trucks to pursue him, a prosecutor said Monday in the murder trial over his killing.

A nearly all-white panel of 12 jurors and three alternates heard an hour-long closing argument from the state Monday morning and were set to hear from lawyers for each of the three defendants. After closings, the jurors are expected to begin deliberations on a verdict.

Father and son Gregory and Travis McMichael and their neighbor William “Roddie” Bryan are charged with murder and other crimes in the February 2020 fatal shooting in Brunswick, about 80 miles south of Savannah. They were arrested two months after the shooting, when Bryan’s cellphone video of the incident was released.
