A judge from Brunswick, Georgia, announced the sentences this Friday (7). of three men for the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, a black man from 40 years, in February 2020.

Travis McMichael and his father, Gregory McMichael, were sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, while neighbor William Bryan Jr. was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole.

The three defendants had been found guilty by a jury in November last year of murder, aggravated assault , imprisonment and attempt to commit a crime. The jury also found Travis McMichael, who shot Arbery, guilty of manslaughter.

In a case that caused great repercussion in the United States, the three defendants, who are white, chased after Arbery, who was black and ran in the region where they lived, and shot him. The defendants alleged they suspected that Arbery could be responsible for a series of robberies in the neighborhood.
