In Georgia, a former district attorney has been indicted on misconduct charges for her role in interfering in the murder investigation of Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man who was chased down and shot to death while out for a jog last year.

A grand jury is accusing former prosecutor Jackie Johnson of covering up for the three white men involved in Arbery’s killing and shielding them from criminal charges. Johnson had previously worked with one of the men, Greg McMichael, who is a former police officer.

Johnson asked police officers not to arrest McMichael’s son, Travis. The father and son, as well as their friend William Bryan, are facing numerous charges in Georgia, including felony murder.
