A full jury has been seated in former Minneapolis Police Department officer Derek Chauvin's trial for the killing of George Floyd.
How we got here: Jurors faced extensive questioning about their knowledge and views of the case — and whether they can set aside any preconceived notions when considering the facts presented at trial.
What we know about the panel: While identities are anonymous, the 12 jurors and two alternates shared basic demographic information with the court:
- No. 2: White male; 20s
- No. 9: Multi/mixed-race woman; 20s
- No. 19: White male; 30s
- No. 27: Black male; 30s
- No. 44: White woman; 50s

What's next: Opening statements are scheduled for Monday, March 29. The trial itself is expected to last about a month.
