Former Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin has reportedly asked a judge to dismiss murder charges against him in the death of George Floyd.

 

In court papers, defense attorneys for Chauvin said there is no probable cause to support charges of second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter. They asked a judge to dismiss the murder charges against him, arguing that Floyd’s alleged drug use, not the improper use of force by the officer, was to blame for his death.

The Minnesota Attorney General says the murder was “especially heinous” because Floyd was killed in front of children.

 

In the legal docs, Ellison noted that Floyd was in a “particularly vulnerable” state because he was handcuffed and chest down on the pavement, repeatedly telling Chauvin and the other officers he could not breathe.
