MINNEAPOLIS — A jury has found former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin guilty on all three charges related to the death of George Floyd in May of last year.
It took the jury about ten hours to convict Chauvin of of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
The officer had pinned the handcuffed Floyd to the ground with his knee on his neck and back for about 9 1/2 minutes while the man repeatedly said "I can't breathe."
Chauvin was taken into custody immediately after the verdict.
Sentencing is expected to take place in eight weeks.
