Derek Chauvin trial: verdict reached after just 11 hours in Floyd killing
The jury in the murder trial of former police Officer Derek Chauvin has reached a verdict over the death of George Floyd.
George Floyd died last May when the white officer Derek Chauvin pinned his knee on the 46-year-old unarmed black man’s neck for more than nine minutes in a case that triggered worldwide protests.
The jury has taken just 11 hours to come to their verdict.
Mr Chauvin is facing three charges: Second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
The fact that I’m seeing so many Americans — of all races — already preparing themselves for a ‘not guilty’ verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial is the truest indictment of the American Justice system and just how little faith the public has in it. #GeorgeFloydTrial

A lot of buzz at the Colorado Capitol as America awaits the verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial. One staffer told me they were moving their car in anticipation.

President Biden called George Floyd’s family to express his support, saying that he was praying for the “right verdict” in Derek Chauvin's trial. He defended his decision to weigh in on an unresolved trial, saying he waited until the jury was sequestered. https://t.co/ZWPFtNw69B pic.twitter.com/6Q1yzk7y9C
