Jury Selection For Chauvin Trial Resumes Monday
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A judge says he won’t delay or move the trial of a former Minneapolis police officer charged in George Floyd’s death but he’ll allow limited evidence from a 2019 arrest.
Jury selection in the trial of Derek Chauvin will stretch into a third week after attorneys seated just one additional juror Friday. The court said up to 16 jurors would be chosen.
The 13th juror picked is a woman who said she’d seen only clips of the video of Floyd’s arrest. Seven jurors had been selected last week when the Minneapolis City Council announced it had unanimously approved a $27 million settlement with Floyd’s family.
