On Jan. 7, three white men who chased and murdered Ahmaud Arbery were sentenced to life in prison in a Georgia courthouse for the 25-year-old's murder in 2020.
According to CNN.com, Travis McMichael, 35; his father, Gregory McMichael, 66; and neighbor William "Roddie" Bryan, 52, were convicted in November on charges including felony murder for Arbery's death.
Judge Timothy Walmsley sentenced the McMichaels to life in prison without the possibility of parole. He sentenced Bryan to life in prison with the possibility of parole. Bryan 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.
Although murder is punishable by death in Georgia, lead prosecutor Linda Dunikoski asked for life sentences for all three men.
