Derek Chauvin speaks for first time at his murder trial, says he won’t testify as defense rests its case. Prosecutors will now have a chance for rebuttal after the defense argued George Floyd’s hypertensive heart disease and drug use, together with his struggle with police, led to his death last Memorial Day in Minneapolis. Jury deliberations will begin next week, and legal observers expect jurors to return with a verdict in a matter of days rather than weeks. Ref. USAToday.
