Travis McMichael was convicted on all nine counts he faced, including malice murder. His father Gregory McMichael and their neighbor William "Roddie" Bryan were also convicted on multiple felony murder counts.
Prosecutors say Greg and Travis McMichael and William "Roddie" Bryan only chased Ahmaud Arbery because "he was a Black man running down their street," while the defense blamed Arbery for the events leading to his death.
The Manhattan D.A. began re-investigating the case nearly two years ago after a Netflix documentary unearthed documents that likely would have prevented the convictions of Muhammad A. Aziz and Khalil Islam.
