BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) — The jury is deliberating for a second day Wednesday  in the trial of three white man charged with the killing of Ahmaud Arbery in coastal Georgia. 

It spent about six hours deliberating Tuesday before adjourning without a verdict. Jurors are weighing murder charges against father and son Greg and Travis McMichael and their neighbor William "Roddie" Bryan.

The McMichaels said they suspected Arbery was a burglar when they chased him past their home in February 2020. Bryan joined the chase and recorded cellphone video of Travis McMichael killing Arbery with a shotgun. Travis McMichael testified he fired in self defense.
