Three men have been indicted on charges of murder following the shooting of Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia.
Travis McMichael, Greg McMichael and William “Roddie” Bryan will face charges including malice and felony murder over the death of the 25-year-old.
Mr Arbery was unarmed when he was shot dead on 23 February as he jogged through a neighbourhood in Brunswick.
McMichael, 34, and his father Gregory, 64, a former police officer, armed themselves and gave chase when they spotted Mr Arbery – telling police they believed he was a burglary suspect.
It was not until 7 May – two days after footage from Bryan’s mobile phone showing the shooting was leaked – that the McMichaels were charged.
Bryan, 50, was arrested on 22 May on charges of felony murder and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment.
Prosecutor Joyette Holmes said: “This is another positive step, another great step for finding justice for Ahmaud, for finding justice for this family and the community beyond.”
