May 7 - Georgia judge sets October trial for three suspects in Ahmaud Arbery homicide

A Georgia judge Friday scheduled an October trial for three white men charged with murder in the slaying of Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man who was chased and shot while running in the defendants’ neighborhood.

Superior Court Judge Timothy Walmsley issued a notice stating that jury selection will begin Oct. 18, with the trial commencing as soon as a jury is seated.

Greg McMichael and his grown son, Travis McMichael, armed themselves and pursued Arbery in a pickup truck on Feb. 23, 2020, just outside the port city of Brunswick, about 70 miles south of Savannah. A neighbor, William “Roddie” Bryan, joined the chase and took cellphone video of Travis McMichael shooting Arbery at close range.

Authorities didn’t bring charges in the case until more than two months later, when the video became public and sparked a national outcry over the case. They have been jailed without bond since their arrests.

Attorneys for all three defendants have insisted they committed no crimes. The McMichaels’ lawyers have said they pursued Arbery, suspecting he was a burglar, after security cameras had previously recorded him entering a home under construction. They say Travis McMichael shot Arbery while fearing for his life as they grappled over a shotgun.

Prosecutors have said Arbery stole nothing and was merely out jogging when the McMichaels and Bryan chased him.

They were each indicted on state charges of malice murder and felony murder, two counts of aggravated a*sault and one count of false imprisonment and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment.

Bryan and the McMichaels also face federal hate crimes charges after a grand jury indicted them last month in U.S. District Court.

Their first appearance before a federal magistrate judge is scheduled for next Tuesday, followed by two days of pretrial hearings in the state’s murder case.

In previous court hearings, Georgia prosecutors have presented evidence that racism may have played a role in Arbery’s slaying.

Last June, Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent Richard Dial testified Bryan told investigators that Travis McMichael uttered a racist slur right after the shooting as he stood over Arbery, who was bleeding on the ground.

Travis McMichael’s attorneys, Jason Sheffield and Robert Rubin, have denied that he made the remark.
