There is new reporting tonight in yet another case, the final moments of ahmaud arbery's life, after a hearing for the three men now charged in his death. State investigators testifying that video and statements from the suspects show that arbery was, quote, chased, hunted down and ultimately executed, and that the man who shot him used a racial slur as he stood over his body. Here's ABC's Steve osunsami. Very testimony from this courtroom in south Georgia says that a racial slur was on the lips of Travis Mcmichael, who is seen here in this cell phone video shooting and killing 25-year-old ahmaud arbery in February. A state investigator says that this is according to neighbor William roddie Bryan, who's also charged in the killing, and recorded the video. Mr. Bryan said that after the shooting took place, before police arrival, while Mr. Arbery was on the ground, that he heard Travis Mcmichael make the statement . Reporter: This was the probable cause hearing for Bryan, Travis Mcmichael and his father, Greg, a former police officer, who are all accused in the killing of this young man. The father and son told police they were trying to make a citizen's arrest after seeing arbery leave this home that's under construction. Mr. Travis Mcmichael used self-defense. Reporter: Investigators say that arbery took nothing. His family says he was out jogging and that the tree men wouldn't have tried to stop him if he were white. The judge tonight sided with prosecutors and moved this case to trial. The three men have yet to enter a plea. One of their lawyers tried to argue that this racist language is common in the south. David? Steve osunsami with us live tonight, as well. Thank you, Steve.
