Wife of the Cop Who Was Charged For George Floyd Death Files For Divorce

Kellie Chauvin, the wife of Derek Chauvin who is the man responsible for the murder of Minneapolis man George Floyd, is filing for divorce.

According to Fox35 Orlando, Kellie Chauvin is planning a “dissolution of her marriage” in response to seeing the video of her husband kneeling on the neck of Floyd.

“She is devastated by Mr. Floyd’s death,” Kellie Chauvin said in a statement released by her family. “Her utmost sympathy lies with his family, his loved ones and with everyone who is grieving.”

“She has filed for dissolution of her marriage, ” the statement added.

Check out what the Daily Wire reported:

Fox35 further reported that Kellie doesn’t have any children from her current marriage to Derek, but it is unclear how long the couple has been married.

Derek Chauvin was one of four officers fired for the altercation that led to Floyd’s death. Floyd was being questioned about allegedly using fake money when officers surrounded him. The incident was eventually filmed, showing Floyd on the ground with Chauvin’s knee pressed to his neck for nearly nine minutes. All the while, Floyd can be heard saying “I can’t breathe.” He was taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

On Friday, Derek Chauvin was arrested for the Floyd's death and he currently faces 3rd degree murder as well as manslaughter.

“According to the document, there have been no conditions set for his release,” CNN reported. “The document doesn’t indicate that Chauvin is out on bail, but it does say that if he does bond out, bail is set for $500,000. The order of detention box is not checked because Chauvin was not ordered detained or remanded.”

The announcement that Chauvin had been arrested came from Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman: “We have now been able to put together the evidence that we need. Even as late as yesterday afternoon, we did not have all that we needed,” Freeman said.

“This is by far the fastest that we’ve ever charged a police officer,” Freeman added.

Check out what CBS Minnesota reported:

Chauvin is the former officer in the video seen around the world with his knee on Floyd’s neck. He’d been with Minneapolis police for 19 years.

It was not immediately clear what the expected charges Chauvin could face are. Answers will likely be provided by Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman, as he has scheduled a press conference at 1 p.m. concerning a “major development” in the case.

On Monday at 8 p.m., Minneapolis police said officers were called to the intersection of Chicago Avenue and East 38th Street on a report of someone trying to use a forged document at Cup Foods.

Police initially said Floyd was resisting arrest and had a medical incident. However, video obtained by CBS News shows Floyd cooperating with officers, at least in the initial moments of the encounter.

A bystander’s video showed Floyd pleading that he could not breathe as a white officer — identified as Chauvin — knelt on his neck and kept his knee there for several minutes after Floyd stopped moving and became unresponsive.

The other officers involved were identified as Tou Thao, Thomas Lane and J Alexander Kueng, both with the department for fewer than three years. All four officers were fired a day after Floyd’s death. As of yet, none of those three have been reported as having been taken into custody.
