  EXPLAINER: What instructions did jury get in Arbery death? ATLANTA (AP) — Before jurors in the trial of the three men charged in the killing of Ahmaud Arbery retired to the jury room to begin their deliberations, the judge read them specific instructions on the law that's applicable to this case. The jury instructions, also called the jury charge, were carefully put together with input from the lawyers for the defense and prosecution, each side trying to make sure instructions on the parts of the law that support its case were included. The disproportionately white jury began deliberating Tuesday after hearing 10 days of testimony.

The attorneys in the Kim Potter case begin questioning potential jurors Tuesday.

So far, potential juror 2 has been selected to sit for the trial and potential jurors 4 and 5 have been excused.

Potential juror 4 seemed to be sympathetic to Duante Wright and have a strongly negative opinion of Potter.

Potential juror 5 told the court he had read a lot about the case before he was called for jury duty. He said he would try his best to set aside his prior knowledge and opinions if selected.

He said he had a positive view of police and respect for the law. When asked about Black Lives Matter "rioters" and calls to defund the police, he shared a negative view. He added that if Wright would have listened to directions at the traffic stop "he still would be with us."
