George Floyd and cop worked in the same night club for a time
The wife of former police officer Derek Chauvin has filed for divorce after he was charged with George Floyd’s murder, according to reports.
Kellie Chauvin, who released a statement through a lawyer last night, is said to be “devastated” by Mr Floyd’s death and has offered her condolences to his family, CBS Minnesota reports.
Her husband has been charged with third degree murder and manslaughter after he was pictured kneeling on the 46-year-old’s neck.
The shamed cop was one of four officers fired following the horrifying incident in Minneapolis on Monday.
Mr Floyd was filmed repeatedly saying he could not breathe as he was pinned to the ground by Chauvin, and died shortly afterwards.
