Four ex-Minneapolis Police officers charged in George Floyd's killing to appear in court today


The ex-Minneapolis Police officer charged with killing George Floyd and the three others accused of aiding and abetting in his death are expected to appear in court later today. 


Derek Chauvin, who is charged with second-degree murder in Floyd's death on May 25, will appear remotely via video.

While his former colleagues, J. Alexander Kueng, Tou Thao, and Thomas Lane, who are each charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter, will appear in person and no cameras will be allowed in court. 

Chauvin’s bail was set at $1.25 million or $1 million under certain conditions, while bail for Kueng, Thao, and Lane was set at $1 million each or $750,000 under certain conditions. 

According to jail records, Chauvin, 44, and Thao, 34, have been in custody since their arrest, while Lane, 37, and Kueng, 26, were released on conditional bond.

George Floyd died on May 25 while in police custody in Minneapolis. Chauvin pressed his knee into Floyd's neck for nearly nine minutes during an arrest as Floyd pleaded “I can’t breathe.”

The police killing, captured on bystander video, triggered outrage and waves of Worldwide protests against racism and police brutality. 

An independent autopsy revealed that he was murdered by ex-cop Derek Chauvin after knee on his neck 'caused asphyxia that led to a lack of blood flow to the brain.'

George Floyd was buried on the 9th of June in his hometown of Houston.
