Gregory and Travis McMichael have been jailed since their arrests in May more than two months after they chased and shot Arbery, a young Black man running in their neighborhood.

Attorneys for the McMichaels, who are white, said in court filings Thursday that the judge should reject the indictment's malice murder charge and a second charge that the McMichaels attempted to commit the crime of false imprisonment.

Bond was denied last month for a third man charged in the case, William “Roddie” Bryan Jr.
