The fate of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, accused of killing George Floyd, is now in the hands of jurors. 

Prosecutors and defense attorneys ended closing arguments Monday after making their cases to jurors following weeks of testimony amid nationwide concerns over potential unrest that could follow once a verdict is reached. 

Judge Peter Cahill said the court is in recess, “until we hear from the jury.” Jury deliberation could take hours, days, or weeks. The jury consists of six White people and six people who are Black or multiracial.
