Jurors in the trial of the three men charged with the murder of Ahmaud Arbery began deliberating just before noon on Tuesday after attorneys made their closing arguments.

How the nearly all-white panel decides on a verdict could ultimately hinge on how they view Travis McMichael, who fatally shot Arbery and was the only defendant to testify.

“If the jury thinks that (Travis) McMichael was justified in using deadly force, then I don’t think they’ll convict his father either, or for that matter the other defendant,” Timothy Floyd, a law professor at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, told USA TODAY. Floyd has been following the trial.

Twelve jurors will decide if McMichael, his father, Gregory, and William “Roddie” Bryan are guilty of murder and other crimes in the death of the 25-year-old Black man on Feb. 23, 2020.

  1. I watched this so many times, so nice to see true justice. These horrible men got what they deserved . I hope Ahmaud is in pure peace, I won't say rip he is to young to rest, but I hope he is in the most ultimate peace,and his family I hope can find some peace. <3

  2. Anyone who tells you America has made progress, remind them that 3 men in pickup trucks with multiple guns chased an unarmed black man and shot him to death…and the 2 prosecutors refused to do anything about it because they said the 3 men were within their rights to defend themselves. It took a moron with a video to actually get this case somewhere. It is incredibly sad that there really is no different between 1821 and 2021…horses are now pickups and instead of hanging, they shot the kid. Absolutely tragic.

  3. No more truckn,trucks, more gunnin,gunning, more boating,no more beer guzzln,guzzle, more homemade foods nothing but 4 walls of steel and concrete losers liars murderers

  4. Just wanna wipe off that sickening pout on Bryan's face! Looks like a 3 yr old that got caught with his hands in the cookie jar!! Bet he regrets not minding his own business!!! 😬

  5. I prefer the video that focuses on Travis as the first verdict is read. I like the look on his face when he realizes that his life is over.

  6. Should never have even went to trial. This is clear definition of racist pieces of shit hunting down and killing someone because of their color.
