The jury in Brunswick Georgia has convicted three men of murdering Ahmaud Arbery.
Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael and William “Roddie” Bryan, Jr. were each charged with nine counts in Arbery’s death.
Video shows the three men ran down the 25-year-old Arbery as he jogged along a neighborhood in Brunswick, Georgia, nearly two years ago.
The decision comes after a month of court proceedings, including a lengthy jury selection process that began October 18th.
Attorneys for the defendants argued they acted in self-defense after attempting to place Arbery under citizen’s arrest, citing a Civil War-era state law that is no longer in place.
