Former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin has been found guilty of two counts of murder and one count of manslaughter in his involvement in the death of George Floyd.

Floyd, 46, died during the arrest last May.

Chauvin’s trial in Hennepin County District Court began on March 8th. It was the first fully televised criminal trial in Minnesota history.

The jury deliberated for a little more than 10 hours prior to reaching its verdict on Tuesday.
