Transcript for Derek Chauvin murder trial starting its 3rd week tomorrow
Well, the murder trial of former police officer Derek chauvin accused of killing George Floyd enters week three of testimony tomorrow. ABC's Reena Roy is in Minneapolis with a look ahead at good morning to you, Reena. Reporter: Good morning to you. Jurors are gearing up for yet another long week of testimony, with the defense expected to take over sometime this week. They will likely call on law enforcement and medical experts like we've seen with prosecutors, but defense attorneys will be trying to prove their theory that drug use and heart issues led to George Floyd's death. Friday we heard from the medical examiner who performed Floyd's autopsy and ruled his death a homicide, but he did provide an opening for the defense by saying those heart and drug problems were likely contributing factors. Earlier in the week, 11 current and former law enforcement officials testified against chauvin, including the police chief. Floyd's family is also expected to take the stand this week to tell the jury about who he was as a person.
