Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison said he became charging Chauvin, 44, with second-degree murder similarly to the third-degree murder and second-diploma manslaughter fees levelled in opposition to him closing week.

At the Minneapolis intersection wherein Floyd become killed, protesters cautiously welcomed the costs, saying "no one is above the law".
