Jurors sent home to await appeal on eve of Minneapolis trial

Jury selection in the murder trial of former Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin was supposed to begin Monday as artists and activists gathered outside the barricaded Hennepin County courthouse to call for justice in the death of another Black man at the hands of police.

Instead, the day began with a confusing debate over whether it was premature to select jurors without resolving the question of whether Chauvin will face an additional charge of third-degree murder.

The defense said it planned to ask the state Supreme Court by Tuesday afternoon to review whether Chauvin, accused of killing Floyd by pressing his knee on Floyd's neck for more than 9 minutes, could face that charge. Chauvin already faces charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter.
