Derek Chauvin has been found guilty of murdering George Floyd.
After 10 and a half hours of deliberations, a jury has unanimously found the former police officer guilty of all charges.
The former Minneapolis officer had denied charges of second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter.
He has been denied bail and will be remanded in the custody of the Hennepin County Sherriff until he is formally sentenced, according to CNN.
Mr Floyd, a 46-year old man, died during his arrest in May 2020, while being restrained by Chauvin.
A recording of the incident, which quickly went viral, showed Chauvin pressing his knee into Mr Floyd’s neck and back area while he gasped for breath and begged for his life.
