WASHINGTON - A Georgia man and his dad sentenced for government disdain wrongdoings for the homicide of a Black man who was shot dead while running were condemned to life in jail on Monday.


Travis McMichael, 36, and his dad, Gregory McMichael, 66, are now carrying out life punishments in the wake of being tracked down blameworthy in a state preliminary for the 2020 homicide of Ahmaud Arbery.


US District Judge Lisa Godbey Wood condemned the two men to life in jail on discrete disdain wrongdoings charges and denied their solicitations that they be permitted to carry out their punishments in a government jail rather than a state office.
