Prosecution rests in trial of men who chased Ahmaud Arbery

BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) — Prosecutors have rested their case in the trial of three white men charged with chasing and killing Ahmaud Arbery as the Black man ran in their neighborhood. Prosecutor Linda Dunikoski made the announcement Tuesday afternoon after the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s lead investigator and medical examiner testified. Dr. Edmund Donoghue told jurors the shotgun blasts that hit Arbery punched a gaping hole in his chest and unleashed massive bleeding. Jurors also saw autopsy photos that showed Arbery’s white T-shirt stained entirely red. Donoghue said Arbery was hit by two of the three shotgun blasts fired at him. GBI Agent Richard Dial walked the jury through maps of the neighborhood and a drone video tracing Arbery’s route during the 5-minute chase.
