Watch live as closing arguments are expected in trial of Derek Chauvin

Closing arguments are set to begin in the murder trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on Monday, after both the prosecution and defence rested their cases last week.

Mr Chauvin is currently standing trial for the murder of unarmed Black man George Floyd, who died in the former Minneapolis police officer’s custody last May. Before the 12 jurors are sequestered to determine the conclusion of the trial, they will hear a final appeal from both sides as the prosecution and defence deliver their closing arguments.

The jurors will then be sequestered to decide on a verdict, which could take hours or up to several weeks.
