XXL magazine reports that this probable cause hearing will determine if former police officer Gregory McMichael, his son Travis McMichael and William "Roddie" Bryan Jr., the man who recorded the video of Arbery's death, are likely to have committed the crimes they are being charged of and decide whether or not the case will go to trial.
According to XXL, Gregory and Travis have been charged with murder and aggravated assault, and William was charged with felony murder and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment. Travis fired the gun that killed Arbery.
Numerous protests have taken place across the US this week in honour of Arbery, as well as George Floyd who was murdered in Minneapolis and Breonna Taylor, a black woman who was killed by police in Louisville.
