Closing arguments are set to begin Monday in the trial of Ahmaud Arbery's murder now that the defense has rested its case.

Three white men — Travis McMichael, his father Greg McMichael and William "Roddie" Bryan — are accused of chasing down the 25-year-old Black man in their trucks last year while Arbery was jogging in a neighborhood in Georgia and killing him.

Travis McMichael testified in his own defense this week. During cross-examination, Travis McMichael revealed that Arbery didn't say a word to him before he pulled out his shotgun and that Arbery was unarmed.
