Jury begins 2nd day of deliberations in Arbery murder trial
BRUNSWICK, Ga. (WTOC) - The second day of jury deliberations in the Ahmaud Arbery murder trial began Wednesday morning. More demonstrations are also expected outside the courthouse.
On Tuesday, the judge moved the jury into a different room inside the courthouse so they couldn’t hear any demonstrations outside.
The jury adjourned Tuesday night after deliberating for more than six hours without reaching a verdict.
If a verdict is not reached before Thanksgiving, we’re told the jury could be brought back Friday, and possibly even Saturday, after taking Thanksgiving Day off. It’s up to the jury to decide how long they deliberate on any given day.
If convicted, the three defendants, Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael and William Roddie Bryan, could face life in prison.
WTOC will resume streaming live from the courtroom once a verdict has been reached.
