    Newly-released body camera footage in the Ahmaud Arbery case shows the men accused of killing him describing the February incident to police while distressed and covered in Arbery's blood.  "I know, I just want it [a police investigation] to be done right," Travis McMichael tells an officer on the video. "It just doesn't look good. I just shot a man." McMichael, his father Gregory, and a third man, neighbor William "Roddie" Bryan Jr. have been charged in connection with Arbery's death earlier this year.  The men said they chased Arbery through their Georgia neighborhood before confronting him, suspecting he was breaking into homes in the area.  "I grab my .357 magnum — Glynn County PD-issued, by the way — so we take off," Gregory McMichael tells officers on the video with blood still on his hands. "And pull up beside him and yell, 'Hey stop stop stop,' we want to talk to you, and he just keeps on running."  Bryan tells...
    The Georgia father and son who are jailed on murder charges in the February shooting of Ahmaud Arbery have been denied bond. Superior Court Judge Timothy Walmsley on Friday ordered that Gregory and Travis McMichael remain behind bars until trial, after prosecutors argued they had tried to interfere in the investigation. The McMichaels have been jailed since their arrests in May, more than two months after Arbery was slain. The McMichaels, who are white, chased and fatally shot the 25-year-old black man after they spotted him running in their neighborhood just outside the port city of Brunswick.  The bond ruling followed a marathon two-day hearing in which the defendants brought forth character witnesses to testify that the father and son don't harbor racist sentiment, while prosecutors introduced explosive text messages, and called on Arbery's mother to deliver an emotional victim-impact statement. At Friday's hearing, prosecutor Jesse Evans showed the court a mysterious coded...
