Wednesday afternoon, on the second day of deliberations, a Glynn County jury found all three men accused of killing Ahmaud Arbery guilty of murder. Travis McMichael, who shot Arbery on Feb.23,220, was found guilty on all nine counts. His father, Gregory McMichael, was found guilty on eight counts. The McMichael’s neighbor, William “Roddie” Bryan, who captured Arbery murder on video, was found guilty on 6 counts. All three men face minimum sentences of life in prison.
On Wednesday’s edition of the “Closer Look,” program host Rose Scott has reaction from the courthouse and state and local leaders. Scott also talks with Hank Klibanoff, an Emory University professor, veteran journalist, and the host of the WABE podcast “Buried Truths,” which investigates the killing of Ahmaud Arbery, about the verdict.
