    Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer who knelt on George Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes last May, was convicted of second-degree murder in his politically explosive trial.

    Chauvin was charged in the death of Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man accused of passing a counterfeit bill at a convenience store. Under Minnesota law he faces up to four decades in prison, although he may get less time under state sentencing guidelines. Jury deliberations began April 19 after three weeks of emotional and sometimes graphic testimony from medical experts, family members and anguished bystanders.

    The jury also convicted Chauvin, 45, of third-degree murder and manslaughter. Chauvin will face sentencing in eight weeks.
