Nine jurors have now been selected to hear the case against the former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin. Two jurors were dismissed yesterday and two more were seated after they were questioned about the city’s 27-million dollar settlement with the family of George Floyd.

Floyd died in police custody last summer after being restrained by Chauvin for nearly nine minutes. Chauvin is being charged with second- and third-degree murder. His trial is scheduled to begin March 29th. Five more jurors are still needed, including two alternates.
