Key Moments Entering Day 11 of the Derek Chauvin Trial


The third week of testimony in the trial of the former officer Derek Chauvin will begin on Monday with prosecutors continuing to call witnesses they think will bolster their argument that Mr. Chauvin caused George Floyd’s death by pinning him to the ground for more than nine minutes.

The defense has been able to cross-examine them but must wait to begin making its case — that Mr. Floyd died from underlying health conditions and the use of drugs — in earnest by calling its own witnesses. That process will be followed by closing arguments from both sides and jury deliberation.

A verdict is possible late this week or early next week.
