Jury out on George Floyd murder

Jurors are now considering their verdict in the trial of a former Minneapolis police officer accused of murdering George Floyd.

Closing arguments in the case concluded yesterday after a three-week trial.

Derek Chauvin was charged after kneeling on Floyd’s neck for almost ten minutes during his arrest almost a year ago.

The 46-year-old Black man had been accused of trying to pass a fake 20-dollar bill.
