Three white men have been convicted of murder in the killing of Ahmaud Arbery, a Black man who was jogging empty-handed through a subdivision in the U.S. state of Georgia.
President Joe Biden hailed the verdict but said the incident last year was a devastating reminder of how far America still had to go in the fight for racial justice.
The defendants had claimed Arbery looked like a burglar.
Jason Sheffield was one of their defense lawyers.
"I've lived with these men for the last year and a half, day in and day out. I've looked into their hearts. I've looked into their souls. I've had very deep conversations with them that stem back to their childhood and their upbringing and I can tell you honestly these men are sorry for what happened to Ahmaud Arbery. They are sorry that he is dead. They are sorry for the tragedy that happened."
