Ahmaud Arbery Murder | A jury in Brunswick, Ga., unanimously found defendants Travis McMichael, his father Greg McMichael, and their neighbor William “Roddie” Bryan guilty on all counts in a federal hate crimes trial.

The jury deliberated for four hours. At the heart of this case was a question of whether or not race was a motivating factor in why the three defendants chased and shot Ahmaud Arbery as he ran through their coastal Georgia neighborhood in February 2020.

During closing statement on Monday, prosecution emphasized and demonstrated that the murder of Ahmaud Arbery was based “on racial hatred, racial assumptions and racial resentment”, as live updated by STESS News.



The defendants were charged with violating Arbery’s civil rights, kidnapping, and for the McMichaels, an additional charge of use of a firearm to commit a crime. All three men were convicted of murdering Arbery in a state trial last year and sentenced to life in prison.

After the federal verdict Tuesday, members of Arbery’s family emerged from the courthouse with arms raised.

“As a mother I will never heal,” said Wanda Cooper-Jones, his mother. “They gave us a small sense of victory, but we will never get victory because Ahmaud is dead.”

The federal charges carry a maximum life sentence. The defendants will have 14 days to file appeals and a sentencing hearing will be set at a later date.
