One of the Minneapolis officers involved in the death of George Floyd has been found guilty of aiding and abetting manslaughter.
A Minnesota judge issued the guilty verdict for Tou Thao on Monday night.
Four former police officers were charged in the aftermath of Mr Floyd’s death. His killing led to mass protests around the world.
Thao’s conviction on the latest charges marks the end in a series of state and federal cases against the four men.
Minnesota’s attorney general Keith Ellison said Thao’s conviction is “historic and the right outcome”.
“While we have now reached the end of the prosecution of Floyd’s murder, it is not behind us,” he said.
“There is much more that prosecutors, law-enforcement leaders, rank-and-file officers, elected officials, and the community can do to bring about true justice in law enforcement,” he said.
All four former police officers have already been convicted on federal civil rights charges. Additionally:
Derek Chauvin was convicted on state murder charges in April 2021
Thomas Lane was sentenced in September 2022 on a state charge of aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter
J Alexander Kueng pleaded guilty to a state charge of aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter in October 2022
Mr Floyd, an unarmed black man, died in May 2020 when Chauvin pressed his knee into Mr Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes. (BBC)
