    Minneapolis is bracing for the start of the murder trial of Derek Chauvin, the former police officer charged with killing George Floyd during an arrest last year. The video of Floyd’s killing sparked a worldwide racial reckoning.

    Jury selection begins Monday in Chauvin’s trial, which is expected to come down to two key questions: Did Chauvin’s actions cause Floyd’s death, and were his actions reasonable?
