Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Three men convicted of murdering Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The three men who chased down and killed Ahmaud Arbery as the Black man was jogging in a suburban Georgia neighborhood last year were found guilty by a jury Wednesday, bringing an end to a contentious trial.

The men were found guilty of felony murder, aggravated assault, false imprisonment and criminal attempt to commit a felony. Travis McMichael, the one who actually shot Arbery, was also convicted of malice murder.

A man in the courtroom let out a gleeful “whoop” when the first verdict was read and was promptly escorted out of the building.

Superior Court Judge Timothy Walmsley said he would wait to schedule sentencing to coordinate with all parties involved.

After 10 days of testimony, the disproportionately white, 12-person panel decided the fate of Travis, 35, who pulled the trigger; his father, 65-year-old Greg McMichael, who drove their pickup truck, and William “Roddie” Bryan, who drove his own truck and joined the chase, then filmed the fatal encounter on his cellphone.
