JUST IN: Men Convicted of Murdering Ahmaud Arbery Sentenced to Life in Prison

Three men convicted of murdering Ahmaud Arbery were sentenced to life in prison on Friday.

“Judge Timothy Walmsley sentenced Travis McMichael and Gregory McMichael to life in prison without the possibility of parole. He sentenced Bryan to life in prison with the possibility of parole. Bryan, who is 52 years old, will be eligible for parole under Georgia law only after he has served 30 years in prison because he was convicted of serious violent felonies.” CNN reported.

In November a jury reached a verdict in the trial of Travis McMichael, his father Gregory and their neighbor, Willian Bryan.

The three white men faced charges of felony murder, false imprisonment, malice murder, aggravated assault and criminal attempt to commit a felony in the killing of fake ‘jogger’ Ahmaud Arbery, a black man.

A Georgia jury in November found Travis McMichael guilty on all counts.

Gregory McMichael and William Bryan were found not guilty of the top charge.

Arbery was a thief who was caught several times snooping around homes and properties in Brunswick, Georgia – even in the daylight.

The media claimed Arbery was out “jogging” when he was shot dead.

The men pursued Arbery to confront him and make a citizen’s arrest (which was legal at the time), a fight ensued and Arbery was shot dead.

The defense argued Travis McMichael shot Arbery in self-defense after he tried taking his weapon away during the fight.
