Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo was one of three people to testify Monday, the first day of the second full week of testimony in Derek Chauvin's murder trial. Arradondo, who fired Chauvin the day after Floyd's death, said on the stand that his actions violated department policies.

The former commander of the department's training program, Katie Blackwell, also said Chauvin's act of putting his knee on Floyd's neck was not in keeping with the training provided to officers. "I don't know what kind of improvised position that is," Blackwell said.

The doctor who treated George Floyd when he arrived at a Minneapolis hospital and pronounced him dead was the first witness to testify Monday.
