Arbery died in a neighborhood outside of Brunswick. The McMichaels, a father and son, were charged with murder and aggravated assault days after a video of the incident went viral, and the GBI got involved. Last week, Bryan was also arrested and charged in the case.
Kevin Gough, Bryan’s attorney, also filed other motions on his behalf, including one seeking to prevent “prejudicial and inflammatory” statements released on behalf of the Arbery family. Gough is also asking for bond to be set for Bryan.
“Thc District Attorney has expressed a desire to try this case in the courts rather than the court 0fpublic opinion, a desire shared by all the parties to this casc and their counsel, but the District Attorney has madeno overt effort to reign in the malicious, prejudicial and inﬂammatory statements that continue to bc put out by those purporting t0 speak on behalfof Ahmaud Arbery,” the motion states.
Cobb County District Attorney Joyette Holmes has been appointed the prosecutor for the cases.
