Defense attorneys for Travis McMicheal and his father Gregory McMichael were readying to make their final pleas to jurors after 10 days of trial testimony.
Closing arguments are set to start Monday in the high-profile trial of three white men charged in the killing of black jogger Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia.

Defense attorneys for Travis McMicheal — who fired the gun which killed Arbery, 25, on Feb. 23, 2020 — and his father Gregory McMichael were readying to make their final pleas to jurors after 10 days of trial testimony.

Travis McMichael testified Thursday he shot Arbery dead while defending himself during a struggle over his shotgun.
