MINNEAPOLIS — More witnesses were being predicted to take the stand Thursday in the murder demo of previous Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, where by attorney questioning has returned to the subject of George Floyd’s drug use.

Floyd’s girlfriend Courteney Ross told jurors last week the two both of those turned addicted to opioids 4 several years in the past following they were being prescribed the drugs for chronic soreness. Like hundreds of thousands of People in america, they tried to go cleanse but unsuccessful, she claimed.

On Wednesday, defense lawyer Eric Nelson suggested Floyd reported the phrases “I ate also several medications” for the duration of his battle with police last Memorial Day. He played several seconds of unintelligible police bodycam audio for witnesses: A single explained he couldn’t make out Floyd’s words, and other mentioned he assumed Floyd was stating “I ain’t do no medicines.”
