Judge dismisses third degree murder charge against Derek Chauvin over George Floyd's death


BREAKING NEWS: Judge dismisses third-degree murder charge against Derek Chauvin in death of George Floyd but he will still face charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter

A judge has dismissed the third degree murder charge against white cop Derek Chauvin over the killing of black man George Floyd after he knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes.

The former Minneapolis police officer still faces other charges including second-degree murder and manslaughter.

The dismissal will stay for five days to allow the state time to appeal the decision.  

Judge Cahill announced the ruling Thursday morning. 

George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, died on Memorial Day as he was arrested by four police officers over allegedly trying to buy cigarettes with a counterfeit $20 bill

He was seen in a video pleading that he couldn't breathe as white officer Derek Chauvin pressed his knee against his neck

George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, died on Memorial Day as he was arrested by four police officers over allegedly trying to buy cigarettes with a counterfeit $20 bill. He was seen in a video pleading that he couldn’t breathe as white officer Derek Chauvin pressed his knee against his neck

The bombshell ruling comes after the same judge ruled earlier this month that Chauvin was allowed to leave Minnesota while on bail.
