Testimony continues today in the Derek Chauvin trial.
Another medical expert for the state is expected to be up first this morning. On Friday, there was key testimony from Hennepin County Chief Medical examiner Dr. Andrew Baker. He conducted George Floyd’s autopsy and ruled his death a homicide. The cause of George Floyd’s death is a key factor in the case. Dr. Baker testified on Friday that Floyd’s heart condition and drug use were factors in his death
The defense will soon begin calling its witness in the case and former U-S attorney for Minnesota Tom Heffelfinger says they’ll be trying to raise reasonable doubt with the jury.
One big question that looms over the proceedings, will the defense call Derek Chauvin to the stand in his own trial.
