Minnesota's Attorney General Keith Ellison has increased the charges against officer Derek Chauvin to second-degree murder in the death of George Floyd. He'd previously been charged with third-degree murder.
The new charge has a maximum sentence of 40 years. The previous third-degree charge had a maximum of 25 years.
The three officers who were with Chauvin when he killed Floyd have finally been charged as well.
Tou Thao, Thomas Lane, and J. Alexander Kueng are all facing charges of aiding and abetting second-degree murder.
The Hennepin County, Minnesota Medical Examiner's Office has released the full for George Floyd. It concluded he died from a heart attack that was brought on by the police restraints . . . and also found fentanyl and meth in his system.
It also found that he was positive for coronavirus, although it does not cite that as a factor in his death.
