Brunswick, Georgia (CBS46)-Three men charged with shooting Amado Arbury in February 2020 will hold a court hearing in Brunswick, Georgia on Wednesday.
The hearing will take place after three defendants, Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael, and William Brian, have pleaded not guilty to federal hate crimes in federal court on Tuesday.
At a hearing on Tuesday, federal prosecutors said father and son Travis and Gregory McMichael “armed with guns, boarded trucks, and chased Armode Arbury through nearby public roads, yelling at Arbury. Brian then blocked Arbury’s route on the truck. “
Brian reportedly recorded a video footage of a deadly encounter showing Arbury and Travis McMichael in a brawl, shortly after hearing three shootings. Arberry died on the scene.
The hearing on Wednesday will be presided over by a state judge, and the hearing is expected to last at least two days.
According to the Associated Press, father and son lawyers will ask state judges to admit evidence of Arbury’s criminal record on behalf of McMichael in state criminal trials.
Meanwhile, state prosecutors are working to keep Arbury’s past criminal records out of court. State prosecutors also ask judges to allow reported text messages containing duos of fathers and sons with racial slander.
