Chauvin Found Guilty of Murdering George Floyd

Mr. Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer, was found guilty on all three charges. He stood trial for three weeks in the death of Mr. Floyd, which spurred the largest civil rights protests in decades.

Derek Chauvin was found guilty of two counts of murder on Tuesday in the death of George Floyd, whose final breaths last May under the knee of Mr. Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer, were captured on video, setting off months of protests against the police abuse of Black people.

After deliberating for about 10 hours over two days following an emotional trial that lasted three weeks, the jury found Mr. Chauvin. He is white, guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and manslaughter for killing Mr. Floyd, a Black man, on a street corner last year on Memorial Day.
