Full jury seated ahead of Derek Chauvin trial for killing of George Floyd

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
  • No. 52: Black male; 30s
  • No. 55: White woman; 50s
  • No. 79: Black male; 40s
  • No. 85: Multi/mixed-race woman; 40s
  • No. 89: White woman; 50s
  • No. 91: Black woman; 60s
  • No. 92: White woman; 40s
  • No. 96: White woman; 50s
  • No. 118: White woman; 20s

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

Of note: A 15th person, selected as an extra alternate, was seated Tuesday. He may be excused Monday if no one else drops out before the trial begins.
