Transcript for Prosecution prepares for 3rd week of Derek Chauvin trial
To Minneapolis and the third week of the Derek chauvin trial expected to resume Monday. The prosecution trying to paint a damning picture of chauvin's actions, calling on current and former member of law enforcementpand medical experts testify against the former police officer. Here's Reena Roy. Reporter: In the second week of the murder trial gripping the nation, prosecutors arguing Derek chauvin's rogue actions directly caused Floyd's death. Building their case, calling 11 current and former law enforcement officials to testify against the former police officer. Sir, is this an mpd-trained neck restraint? No, sir. It is not part of our training, and it is certainly not part of our ethics or our values. Reporter: How damning has that testimony been? It's been really remarkable. The blue wall of silence has come down in this case. Reporter: The jury hearing from several medical experts, describing exactly how Floyd died in painful detail. A healthy person subjected to what Mr. Floyd was subjected to would have died. Reporter: But Dr. Andrew baker, the medical examiner who performed Floyd's autopsy provided an opening for the defense, which argues heart issues and drug use led to his death. In your opinion, both the heart disease as well as the history of hypertension and the drug -- the drugs that were in his system played a role in Mr. Floyd's death. In my opinion, yes. Reporter: When pressed by the prosecution, baker still classifying Floyd's death as a homicide. The defense has struggled to create reasonable doubt. We haven't gotten to their witnesses yet. There's a lot yet to come. Reporter: And George Floyd's family is expected to take the stand to tell the jury about who he was as a person, and the defense could start calling their witnesses at some point next week. Whit? Reena Roy for us, thank you.
