Jury begins deliberations in trial of three men accused of killing Ahmaud Arbery

Brunswick, Georgia (CNN)The prosecutor in the trial of three men accused of killing Ahmaud Arbery sought Tuesday to simplify the events that led to the 25-year-old’s death, taking the podium the day after defense teams spent closing arguments trying to criminalize Arbery, alleging he brought his death on himself.

Prosecutor Linda Dunikoski delivered her rebuttal early Tuesday, emphasizing to the jury Arbery was accused of no crime and the defendants told police they knew of no crime he’d committed. She had almost two hours remaining after delivering the first part of her closing arguments ahead of defense counsel.
Lawyers for the three White men charged with murder used their final statements Monday to say Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael and William “Roddie” Bryan Jr. had reason to believe Arbery was up to no good because he’d entered an under-construction home and he ran when confronted.
