In July 2016, police officer Jeronimo Yanez shot Philando Castile during a traffic stop. Yanez has been charged with manslaughter. Reporters from MPR News will follow the case, beginning with the traffic stop, in a new podcast called "74 Seconds."

Seventy-four seconds is the amount of time that elapsed between the moment Yanez turned on his squad car lights to the moment he fired the seventh and final shot into Castile's car. 

Episodes launched May 22, and our coverage continues when the trial begins: On the podcast, on the radio and on our website at mprnews.org/74seconds.

Trial, Day 14: The verdict

Jurors indicated Wednesday they've been unable to reach a unanimous verdict.

On Friday, the fifth day of deliberation, the jury in the trial of Jeronimo Yanez reached a verdict: Not guilty on all counts. We called reporter Riham Feshir, at the courthouse, in the minutes after the verdict was announced.
