BRUNSWICK, Ga. — Three men convicted of the murder of Ahmaud Arbery last month will be sentenced in January.
On Monday, a judge set the sentencing hearing for Travis and Greg McMichael and William “Roddie” Bryan for Friday, January 7 at 10 a.m.
Travis McMichael was found guilty on all counts including malice murder and felony murder. Greg McMichael and William “Roddie” Bryan were found guilty of felony murder and other charges.
Father and son Greg and Travis McMichael grabbed guns and chased Arbery in a pickup truck after spotting him running through their Satilla Shores subdivision on Feb. 23, 2020.
Bryan, the men’s neighbor, joined and recorded video of Travis McMichael opening fire as Arbery threw punches and grabbed for his shotgun.
No one was charged in the killing until Bryan’s video leaked and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation took over the case from local police.
All three men face possible life sentences.
