and manslaughter after he snuffed out a man’s life instead just arresting him like a normal police officer should. His three co-workers will be facing charges as well.

MINNEAPOLIS – Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin’s murder charge has been upgraded to second-degree murder in the death of George Floyd. Prosecutors are also charging three other officers involved with aiding and abetting murder.

Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison increased the third-degree murder charge against Derek Chauvin to second-degree murder, it was announced Wednesday. In addition, the three officers who video shows participated in Floyd’s murder – Tou Thao, Alexander Kueng, and Thomas Lane are now facing charges.

The four officers were immediately fired from their jobs.  It took some time before Chavin was arrested and even longer for authorities to charge the other three officers.  To complicate matters, a Hennepin county medical examiner’s autopsy declared Floyd’s death was caused by factors other than asphyxiation, while a second autopsy authorized by Floyd’s family found he died from asphyxiation.
