BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) — All three men charged in the death of Ahmaud Arbery have been convicted of murder in the fatal shooting that became part of a larger national reckoning on racial injustice.

The convictions for Greg McMichael, son Travis McMichael and neighbor William “Roddie” Bryan came after jurors deliberated for about 10 hours. The men face minimum sentences of life in prison.

It is up to the judge to decide whether that comes with or without the possibility of parole.
