THREE men charged with the shooting death of Ahmaud Arbery were convicted of his murder on Wednesday and Arbery’s mom has since broken her silence about the verdict.

Arbery’s mother cried as the verdict was announced for Gregory McMichael, 65; his son Travis McMichael, 35; and their friend William ‘Roddie’ Bryan, 52.

“This is the second Thanksgiving we’ve had without Ahmaud. But at the same time I’m thankful. This is the first Thanksgiving we are saying we got justice for Ahmaud,” Arbery’s mother, Wanda Cooper-Jones, told The Associated Press on Thursday.

The judge was forced to temporarily halt the verdict announcement after the courtroom erupted in cheers when Gregory’s first guilty charge was read.

Outside the court, protesters celebrated the decision by shouting Arbery’s name.

The killing of Arbery on February 23, 2020, sparked outrage across the country when a video of the death went viral months later.

All three defendants had pleaded not guilty and now face life in prison.
