Jury in Ahmaud Arbey murder continue deliberations
The Jury has once again started their deliberations today in the trial of three white men accused of killing Ahmaud Arbery.
After five and half hours of deliberations on Tuesday, court recessed for the evening around 6:30 p.m.
Before recessing, the presiding Judge inquired of the jury foreperson on if the jury was close to reaching a verdict.
The foreperson responded by telling the Judge that they were working trying to reach a verdict. He suggested breaking for the evening and returning Wednesday morning to continue deliberations.
In a somewhat strange twist, once the foreperson returned back to the jury deliberation room the Judge was then notified that jurors indeed wished to continue deliberations.
Meanwhile on the outside of the court house, a prayer vigil was taking place just feet away from the courthouse steps.
Local and National faith leaders led the crowd of over one hundred as they sang hymns, prayed, and embraced one another for continuing to fight for justice.
While no verdict was reached Tuesday, many in attendance are hopeful that the jury will soon come back with a guilty verdict for all defendants.
According to the Glynn County Sheriff's office, if no verdict is reached Wednesday, the Judge plans to resume deliberations on Friday morning, and will also consider Saturday deliberations.
