The federal indictment of three men accused of killing Ahmaud Arbery represents "one step closer to justice," his mother told CNN.

A third man, William "Roddie" Bryan Jr. , who recorded video of Arbery's death, allegedly hit Arbery with his truck after he joined the McMichaels in the chase.

All three were indicted Wednesday by a federal grand jury in the Southern District of Georgia and charged with hate crimes and the attempted kidnapping of Arbery, according to a news release from the Justice Department.

Jason Sheffield and Robert Rubin, attorneys for Travis McMichael, said in a statement "we are deeply disappointed that the Justice Department bought the false narrative that the media and state prosecutors have promulgated. "

While Arbery was jogging, prosecutors said the McMichaels "armed themselves with firearms, got into a truck, and chased Arbery through the public streets of the neighborhood while yelling at him, using their truck to cut off his route, and threatening him with firearms. "

Bryan also joined the chase and cut off Arbery's route with his truck, prosecutors said.
