Derek Chauvin found guilty of George Floyd murder - moment the verdicts were delivered | ITV News

The jury has found former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin guilty of the murder and manslaughter of George Floyd.

The verdict, read out on Tuesday afternoon, was reached by a jury after less than a day of deliberations.

Mr Floyd died on May 25 last year after Chauvin, a 45-year-old white officer, was seen on video kneeling on the 46-year-old black man’s neck for about nine-and-a-half minutes.

The footage drew outrage across the US and triggered worldwide protests and violence.
