Derek Chauvin trial live: Minnesota Supreme Court rejects appeal that could allow another murder charge; 5 jurors selected

0


MINNEAPOLIS – Jury selection continued Wednesday in the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin in a case that rocked the country and spurred worldwide protests after George Floyd’s death.

The court continued hearing from more potential jurors, questioning them about their knowledge of the case, the protests and Floyd’s death and asking whether they could set aside any existing opinions to serve impartially. 

The proceedings were partially disrupted after the Minnesota Supreme Court rejected an appeal by Chauvin, which could result in him facing an additional murder charge in Floyd’s death.

Thus far, fivejurors have been chosen: four men, one woman. A few seemed eager; others fearful, some expressing safety concerns about serving on such a high-profile and divisive case, especially if their identity became public.
