Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on Tuesday was found guilty of murdering George Floyd during his arrest last year.

Jurors found Chauvin, 45, guilty on all three charges — second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. He faces up to 40 years behind bars on the top charge.

Chauvin — wearing a light gray suit, white shirt and blue tie — showed little emotion as the verdict was read, and as he was lead out of the courtroom in cuffs.

Jurors deliberated for more than 10 hours over two days before reaching a verdict in the high-profile and closely watched case stemming from Floyd’s May 25, 2020, death — which kicked off worldwide protests against police brutality and racial injustice.
