Case Goes to the Jury

The jury now controls the fate of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin. 

Closing arguments in the three-week trial ended today, and jurors will be sequestered at a hotel until they come to a verdict.  Chauvin is accused of killing George Floyd last year by pressing his knee on Floyd’s neck for about nine minutes until he stopped breathing.  Chauvin faces up to 40 years in prison if convicted.
