The father and son convicted of murdering Ahmaud Arbery were both given an additional sentence of life in prison Monday on federal hate crime charges, while their neighbor was sentenced to 35 years in prison.

A judge also required that Travis McMichael, 36, Greg McMichael, 66, and William “Roddie” Bryan, 52, serve their sentences in state prison, not federal prison as had been requested by their attorneys.

The three men were convicted of all of the federal charges against them, including hate crimes, attempted kidnapping and the use of a firearm to commit a crime.

Travis McMichael, whose sentence is life plus 10 years, declined to speak before the judge announced her decision.

The federal case followed a state trial in November in which the men were convicted of murder and given life sentences.

The men, who spotted Arbery running by their homes, cornered him, and Travis McMichael fatally shot him with a shotgun.

McMichael's defense team also asked the judge for a transfer to federal prison, where he could avoid serving time for the murder in Georgia’s state prison system. »
