The defense's closing argument is underway in the trial of former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin.
Chauvin is charged with second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in George Floyd's death on May 25, 2020. He has pleaded not guilty.
Attorney Eric Nelson is delivering the closing argument for the defense.
Prosecutor Steve Schleicher spent 1 hour and 43 minutes during his remarks earlier Monday, arguing why Chauvin should be convicted.
After the defense's closing argument, prosecutor Jerry Blackwell will have the opportunity to deliver a rebuttal.
