MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The jury has reached a verdict at the murder trial of former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd.
The verdict is to be read late Tuesday afternoon.
Floyd died last May after Chauvin, a white officer, pinned his knee on the 46-year-old Black man's neck for about 9 1/2 minutes in a case that triggered worldwide protests, violence and a furious reexamination of racism and policing in the U.S.
The jury deliberated over parts of two days in a city on edge against another outbreak of unrest.
