The jury will begin day two of deliberations today in the trial of ex-Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin, who is charged in the death of George Floyd. Follow here for the latest.
The jury in Derek Chauvin's trial heard from 45 witnesses and were shown bystander and police footage of George Floyd's final moments.
The charges are to be considered separate, so Chauvin could be convicted of all, some or none of them.
That key question is at the heart of the three charges against the former Minneapolis Police officer and will be top of mind for jurors when their deliberations begin.
Each of the three charges requires prosecutors to prove that Chauvin's actions were not objectively reasonable and that they were a substantial cause of Floyd's death.
President Biden spoke with Philonise Floyd, the brother of George Floyd, on Monday, delivering well wishes as the family and nation awaits a verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin.
