Welcome back to our ongoing coverage of the Ahmaud Arbery case, with what we expect to be day two of general jury selection for the trial of Travis McMichael, Greg McMichael, and William “Roddy” Bryan on murder and other charges over the death of Ahmaud Arbery on February 23, 2020.
General jury selection began yesterday, in which jurors are asked “hand-raising” questions in groups of 20 as part of an initial screening. Although portions were broadcast for most of the selection process there was no audio–making observation of the selection proceedings broadcast rather uninformative.
This morning, however, local journalists physically present are reporting that so far 12 prospective jurors have been dismissed through the general jury selection process. In total, 1,000 local Glynn County residents have been notified that they are prospective jurors in this case, with 600 of those ordered to report yesterday, and the first group of 20 prospective jurors were subject to general selection yesterday afternoon.
All jurors have already filled out and returned an initial 3-page juror questionnaire, and in general jury selection are being subject to additional questions prepared separately by prosecutors and the defense attorneys, and were approved yesterday by Judge Walmsley.
