This afternoon, Cobb County District Attorney Joyette Holmes, announced that a grand jury has handed down indictments regarding the murder of Ahmaud Arbery.
Greg and Travis McMichael, and William “Roddie” Bryan have been charged. Per Fox 11 LA:
The indictment has nine charges, including malice murder, four counts of felony murder, two counts of aggravated assault, false imprisonment; and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment.
Both of the McMichaels were charged with felony murder. Bryan, the neighbor who filmed the incident, was also charged with felony murder and illegal use of a vehicle to detain Arbery.
Holmes acknowledged that the timing of the trial may be impacted by COVID-19 restrictions. She was appointed to prosecute the case in May, in place of Tom Durden, the Atlantic Judicial Circuit District Attorney, who was accused of sitting on the case by attorneys for Arbery’s family.
