Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael and William “Roddie” Bryan Jr. were found guilty of murder on Wednesday (Nov. 24) for fatally shooting Ahmaud Arbery last year. The jury found Travis guilty of one count of malice murder and four counts of felony murder.

His father, Gregory McMichael, was also found guilty of felony murder. Jurors convicted Bryant of felony murder, but acquitted him of his malice murder charge.

All three men now face a maximum sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole.

The McMichaels have also been indicted on separate federal hate crime charges, including interference with rights, attempted kidnapping and using, carrying, brandishing and discharging a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence. Bryan was federally indicted on hate crime charges and attempted kidnapping. All three men pleaded not guilty to those charges and their trial is set for next February.
