A Georgia jury on Wednesday found Travis McMichael; his father, Gregory Michael; and their neighbor William "Roddie" Bryan guilty of multiple counts of murder in the killing of Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man.
Arbery was shot dead by Travis McMichael in February 2020 after being pursued by the three men while jogging in the neighborhood of Brunswick, Ga.
Arbery's death was one of the prominent killings of Black Americans that garnered national media attention in the last two years, leading to protests of racial equality and police reform.
Earlier this week, McBath also commemorated the nine-year anniversary of her own son, Jordan Davis, being killed. Davis was shot at a gas station in 2012 over an argument about loud music.
"Jordan, I didn't get to hug or kiss you goodbye. You were only 17 with your whole life ahead of you. My heart is still broken," McBath said in her post .
