Three white men who were accused of  Ahmaud Arbery’s killing will be set on court trial on Monday.

The case alleges that the young man was “hunted down and ultimately executed” while he was on his regular jog.

The high-profile case that started the nationwide protest and forced lawmakers of Georgia to rewrite the state laws will begin jury selection on Monday.

Ahmaud Arbery’s family attorneys, Benjamin Crump and Lee Merritt called the brutal killing “modern-day lynching” and said, the white defendants are trying to exploit the county laws to justify their actions.

Merritt stated to ABC News, “There’s some segment of that community that believes what they did was a good thing. That’s not a fringe opinion. That defense is what their lawyers are hanging their hat on.”

The three white defendants include a retired police official, Gregory McMichael, 65, his son Travis McMichael and William Bryan, 52, who is allegedly their neighbor.

Wanda Cooper-Jones, the deceased’s mother, stated to ABC News, “Just to think about what I have to go through in the midst of the trial … it’s really scary,” and added with a broken heart, “Some days I have my doubts of getting justice for Ahmaud.”

On Saturday, people rallied outside the Glynn County Courthouse in Georgia, demanding justice for Ahmaud and his family.

The white defendants have been charged with the hate crime as at the time of the killing, Georgia didn’t have any such law enforcement. However, in June, Gov. Brian Kemp signed the county’s hate crime law for enforcement and said, We saw injustice with our own eyes.”

Among the defendants, McMichael and his neighbor Bryan have not pleaded guilty to murder charges. Moreover, the three of them have been charged previously for federal hate crimes. Though, none of them pleaded guilty.  Regarding the case, the professor of the University of Georgia Law School, said, “The remarkable part of this is that the case that caused the law to change is the one that’s now being tried. That doesn’t happen very often, if ever.”
