The jury on the trial of the former Minneapolis Police officer began deliberations Monday afternoon, after three weeks of testimony and more than 6 hours of closing arguments.
Almost one year after the videos showing the previous moments before George Floyd’s death, the trial of the former police officer, Derek Chauvin, who maintained his knee over Floyd’s neck over 9 minutes, is coming to an end. The jury of seven women and five men began deliberating Monday afternoon at 5 p.m. ET and continued until 9 p.m. ET. They resumed deliberations Tuesday morning and are set to come to a verdict within the next hours, days, or even weeks.
