WARNING: Viewers may find portions of this trial disturbing
Day 4 in the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin over the death of George Floyd.
George Floyd could be heard pleading for his life and saying "I can't breathe" in four police body-camera videos prosecutors played for jurors Wednesday afternoon in the murder trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin.
Prosecutors played videos from the body-cams of former officers Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao, as well as part of Chauvin's video. The three officers are being tried in August for aiding and abetting Chauvin in the second- and third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter of George Floyd.
Earlier, a witness who glimpsed the first moments of Floyd’s arrest broke down sobbing on the witness stand. Charles McMillian, 61, took off his glasses and wiped the tears from his eyes, saying "oh my god" after seeing video of Floyd calling for his mother and saying "I can't breathe." The court then took a brief break before McMillian returned to the stand.
