Derek Chauvin will not take the stand in George Floyd murder trial – BBC News

The former officer accused of killing George Floyd says he will not testify in his defence as his team prepares to call their final witnesses.

Experts say it would be unusual for a suspect to take the stand in their own defence during a trial.

Video of Derek Chauvin kneeling on the neck of Mr Floyd led to worldwide protests against racism and policing.

Mr Chauvin denies killing Mr Floyd. Jurors will begin deliberating early next week.

All 12 must agree to Mr Chauvin’s guilt in order for him to be convicted.
