One of the three men charged in Ahmaud Arbery's death "minimized" his involvement in the killing and changed his description of what happened that day, an investigator told jurors Friday at the murder trial.

William "Roddie" Bryan, who captured cellphone video of the incident last year, "changed the descriptive words" he used regarding his role in the fatal confrontation between an initial interview with Glynn County Police and an interview with Georgia Bureau of Investigations officers months later, the agent said.

Earlier Friday, a police officer testified he was called to the site of a house under construction and intended to issue a trespassing warning to a man who matched Arbery's description. Months later, Arbery walked into the site and was chased and killed.

The two law enforcement testimonies came the same day civil rights attorney Ben Crump announced that 100 Black pastors were expected to pray with Arbery's family outside the Glynn County Courthouse, likely next week.

  1. The defense is making deliberately incendiary statements so he can provoke an incident, he wants as many angry people as possible screaming and shouting outside of the court in the hope of putting the jurors in a fearful enough mindset to empathize with his clients
