There were rallies for racial justice across the country after the murder of Ahmaud Arbery.

A white father and son convicted of killing a black racer in the southern United States were sentenced Friday to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Last November, a jury found Travis and Gregory McMichael and their neighbor, William Bryan, guilty of the murder of Ahmaud Arbery in February 2020.

Bryan also received the maximum sentence of life in prison, but was offered the possibility of parole in 30 years.

The judge observed a minute’s silence for the “cruel” murder of Arbery.
