The Minneapolis jury has found police officer Derek Chauvin, 45, guilty of all counts of murder for the death of African American George Floyd, which occurred amid a brutal street arrest on May 25. The judge now has eight weeks to announce his sentence.
After a three-week trial, the 12-member jury debated the policeman’s guilt on Monday and reached an agreement in just 24 hours. The verdict has come in a climate of growing tension in the United States following the shooting deaths of African American Daunte Wright, 20, in Minnesota, and Adam Toledo, 13, in Chicago.
