BRUNSWICK, Georgia – Jurors in the murder trial of the three Georgian men charged with the murder of Ahmaud Arbery listened to hours of argument on Monday as four lawyers presented varying views on what happened that day at the start of Last year.

The prosecution said Arbery was “attacked” by white men who saw a black man run around their small coastal neighborhood and jumped into vans to chase him.

Defense attorneys for two of the men drew a portrait of residents pissed off by crime in the neighborhood and said the men were trying to detain Arbery for police. A lawyer for the third said his client was a witness who simply documented the murder.

The almost all-white panel of 12 jurors and three deputies was due to hear a rebuttal of the prosecution on Monday afternoon. After the fences, jurors should begin deliberating on a verdict.
