They were indicted on malice and felony murder charges.
The charges also include aggravated assault, false imprisonment and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment.
Authorities said Arbery was shot and killed while jogging near Brunswick, Georgia after being chased down by the McMichaels.
Investigators also said they believe William R. Bryan who recorded the incident used his vehicle to try to “confine and detain” Arbery in the minutes leading to his death.
Earlier this month Bryan also told police Travis McMichael said F-word and the N-word after shooting and killing Arbery.
Gregory McMichael’s legal team said he was a victim of a rush of judgment and Travis McMichael’s lawyer said he’s not guilty.
Bryan’s attorney said his client was only a witness.
Arbery’s death has been at the center of recent protests over racial injustices.
