Ahmaud Arbery's Mother Calling For Death Penalty For Son's Killers

The mother to Ahmaud Arbery is calling for a death penalty on son’s killers, saying the people who senselessly took her son’s life deserve to lose theirs at the hands of the state of Georgia.

According to the report by TMZ, Wanda Cooper-Jones who is the mother to Ahmaud Arbery told the news agency that she would like prosecutors to seek death penalty sentences for Travis and Gregory McMichael, who were the two men charged with Ahmaud’s murder.

TMZ in their report added that Wanda said this on Tuesday afternoon, where she was asked if capital punishment was appropriate in this case.

She was quoted to have said, “Coming from my point of view, my son died, so they should die as well.”

There may be several circumstances in this case that would allow the prosecutor to seek the death penalty, including this provision of Georgia law; the death penalty can be sought if “the capital offence was outrageously or wantonly vile, horrible, or inhuman in that it involved torture, the depravity of mind or an aggravated battery to the victim.”

Wanda told the tabloid that she’s already spoken to the newly appointed prosecutor, Joyette Holmes. But during TMZ interview, Wanda’s attorney, Lee Merritt, didn’t want her to disclose too much about her conversation with Holmes.

But, Wanda did make it clear she’s confident she and Holmes are on the same page when it comes to getting justice for Ahmaud.
