Now the defense gears up to present its case to the jury. Alex Perez is there at the courthouse for us again in Minneapolis. Good morning, Alex. Reporter: Hey, good morning, after calling more than three dozen witnesses, the prosecution will soon rest its case. For the first time the jury hearing from one of Floyd's family members. This morning, after 11 days of testimony from 38 witnesses and the prosecution preparing to rest their case in Derek chauvin's trial. The state will call Dr. Jonathan rich. Reporter: Cardiologist Dr. Jonathan rich testifying that George Floyd's heart stopped due to lack of oxygen caused by being restrained face down on the ground with chauvin's knee on his neck, not as the defense argues because of heart disease or the drugs found in his system. I can state with a high degree of medical certainty that George Floyd did not die from a primary cardiac event and he did not die from a drug overdose. Reporter: The state's witnesses including ten medical experts and a dozen members of law enforcement reinforcing the prosecution's argument on what caused Floyd's death and whether chauvin's use of force was appropriate.

Reporter: The jury shown never before seen photos of Floyd as a young child in his mother's arms as a teenager growing up in Houston and as a community college athlete.

He will always make sure that we had our clothes for school, he made sure that we all were going to be to school on time. He showed us like how to treat our mom and how to respect our mom. He just -- he loved her so dearly. Reporter: And we expect the defense will begin presenting their case today. The judge telling jurors to prepare for closing arguments on Monday and to prepare to be sequestered once deliberations begin, George.
