A nearly all-white jury, with one black member, has been seated in the Georgia murder trial of three white men over the shooting of a black jogger in 2020.
The judge noted the appearance of “intentional discrimination” in jury selection but said the trial over Ahmaud Arbery’s killing would proceed.
Gregory McMichael and his son Travis have pleaded not guilty, saying they acted in self-defence.
But prosecutors argue there was racial bias at play.
Opening arguments begin on Friday.
