Derek Chauvin trial live: Teen who recorded George Floyd video gives emotional testimony

0


MINNEAPOLIS — More witnesses took the stand Tuesday in the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, including a mixed martial arts fighter, the teenager who recorded a video showing the death of George Floyd, and her 9-year-old cousin.

Two other witnesses – a 911 dispatcher and a cashier working across the street – testified Monday, and lawyers for the defense and prosecution opened the trial by laying out their case. Here’s what you missed.

Floyd, a Black man, died in police custody on May 25, 2020, after Chauvin, who is white, pinned his knee against Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes as Floyd cried out “I can’t breathe” more than 20 times. Chauvin is charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
