Both parties to the trial of the three men accused of the murder of Ahmaud Arbery made their final statements on Monday. Prosecutors will not have refuted the defense arguments until Tuesday morning, after the jury told the judge they wanted to go home for the night. The judge also said the jury would be moved to interior rooms of the courthouse so that they would not hear the chants of protesters outside the courthouse.

Here is an overview of the main closing arguments.

  • Linda Dunikoski, the prosecutor, told the jury that the three men had made assumptions about Ahmaud Arbery and had no justification to prosecute him as they had no evidence that he had committed a crime that day- the. “They made the decision to attack Ahmaud Arbery in their alleys because he was a black running in the street,” Ms. Dunikoski said.

  • Defense attorneys for Gregory McMichael and his son Travis McMichael said their clients were hoping to make a citizen arrest when they chased Mr. Arbery in a truck. Lawyers said their clients were concerned about an increase in crime in their neighborhood and were certain, when they saw Mr Arbery, that he was the intruder lurking in a house in part built where they had been told there had been thefts. Jason V. Sheffied, who represents Travis McMichael, said when his client shot Mr. Arbery he was acting in self-defense because he feared for his life.

  • William Bryan’s attorney, Kevin Gough, known as Roddie, made an effort to keep his client away from the McMichaels and their actions. Mr. Gough argued that Mr. Bryan, who recorded Mr. Arbery’s death on his cell phone, was unaware that a crime was taking place and did nothing to harm Mr. Arbery.
