Ex-police officer Derek Chauvin to make first court appearance since George Floyd’s death

National

(KLAS) — The former Minneapolis police officer charged with the murder of George Floyd will make his first court appearance Monday afternoon.

Chauvin was arrested last month and charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. However, the Minnesota attorney general announced Chauvin would also face a second-degree murder charge.

The other three officers involved in Floyd’s death — Thomas Lane, J. Alexander Kueng and Tou Thao — were charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter.
