June 24, 2020

A Georgia grand jury has indicted all three white men accused in the shooting death of unarmed black jogger Ahmaud Arbery on murder charges, prosecutors announced Wednesday.

The indictment charges Travis McMichael, 34, his 64-year-old father, Gregory McMichael, and William “Roddie” Byan, 50, with nine counts, including malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, and false imprisonment, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

“This is another step forward in seeking justice for Ahamaud,” Cobb County District Attorney Joyette Holmes said during a press conference, WGCL-TV said. “Our team from the Cobb Judicial Circuit has been committed to effectively bringing forward the evidence in this case, and today was no exception.”

“We will continue to be intentional in the pursuit of justice for this family and the community at large as the prosecution of this case continues,” she said.
