MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – – All four former Minneapolis police officers charged in the death of George Floyd are due court Monday.
Floyd died last month after officer Derek Chauvin held his knee to his neck on the corner of 38th Street and Chicago Avenue in south Minneapolis. Cellphone video of the fatal arrest sparked protest and riots across the country.
The Minneapolis Police Department fired all four officers involved. All four face murder-related charges.
Monday’s hearing is scheduled for 12:15 p.m.
Chauvin, who faces second-degree murder among other charges, is expected to make his appearance remotely.
The other three ex-officers — Tou Thao, Alexander Kueng and Thomas Lane — will make their appearance in person.
Lane and King posted bail, while Chauvin and Thao remain in custody.
Chauvin and Thao were veterans officers, while Kueng and Lane were both new to the Minneapolis police force.
No cameras are allowed in the courtroom.
WCCO requested to have a camera in the courtroom, but that request was denied.
The judge will consider the recordings during trial at another time.
