As The New York Times notes, the defendants “said they suspected Mr. Arbery of a series of break-ins in their subdivision of Satilla Shores, just outside the small coastal city of Brunswick, Ga., when they chased him through the neighborhood on a Sunday afternoon in February 2020.”

Meanwhile, the prosecutor argued that the defendants killed Arbery “because he was a Black man running down the street.”
