Jury Selection Begins in Trial of Three White Men Charged with Killing Ahmaud Arbery

HeadlineOct 18, 2021

In Georgia, jury selection starts today in the trial of three white men accused of murdering Ahmaud Arbery, an unarmed 25-year-old Black man who was chased down and shot to death while out for a jog. Over the weekend, community members and Ahmaud Arbery’s family gathered outside of the Glynn County Courthouse for a pretrial rally. Another rally is planned for today. Last month, former prosecutor Jackie Johnson was indicted and arrested for interfering with the investigation and trying to prevent the arrest of two of Arbery’s killers — Greg McMichael, a former police officer, as well as his son Travis.
