Prosecutors were expected to call more witnesses to the stand Monday to open the first full week of testimony in the trial of the three men charged in the murder of 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery early last year.
Attorneys for the state and for two of the defendants, father and son Greg and Travis McMichael, gave their opening statements Friday, and prosecutors called the first witness – a police officer who responded to the scene of the shooting.
An attorney for the third defendant, William “Roddie” Bryan, was expected to give his opening statement after the state finished calling witnesses.
The three defendants are accused of murder and other crimes in the death of Arbery, who was shot three times at close range with a shotgun. Video of the incident, captured by Bryan, was released by a Georgia attorney two months later, prompting national outrage.
