Murder trial for George Floyd begins, Family Demands Justice
George Floyd must receive justice, his family said ahead of opening arguments Monday in the trial of the white police officer accused of killing the Black man, whose agonising death ignited protests against racism and police brutality across the United States and around the world.
“I have a big hole right now in my heart. It can’t be patched up … I need justice for George. We need a conviction,” Floyd’s brother Philonise told reporters in Minneapolis Sunday.
Derek Chauvin, a veteran of the Minneapolis Police Department, faces murder and manslaughter charges for his role in the May 25, 2020 death of the 46-year-old Floyd.
Chauvin, 44, who was fired from the police force along with three other officers, could be sentenced to up to 40 years in prison if convicted of the most serious charge — second-degree murder.
