MEN CHARGED IN AHMAUD ARBERY’S MURDER TO APPEAR IN COURT

The three men accused in the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, one of a series of recent killings of black Americans that has propelled protests nationwide, were scheduled to appear in court Thursday morning, according to the Glynn County Magistrate Court.

Arbery, a 25-year-old black man, was shot three times Feb. 23 after a white father and son – Gregory, 64, and Travis McMichael, 34, – chased him down while he was jogging through Satilla Shores, a neighborhood two miles from his home in Brunswick.

A third white man, William “Roddie” Bryan Jr., 50, captured the killing on video.

Glynn County police told USA TODAY that they had no records of home break-ins or burglaries between Jan. 1 and Feb. 23 in that neighborhood. Local media reported one car burglary.
