George Floyd's Killer Wants Charges Against Him Dropped
Floyd died on May 25 after Derek Chauvin knelt on Floyd's neck for almost eight minutes, in the presence of three other officers. All have been fired.
Chauvin's attorney said Friday there is no probable cause to support charges of second and third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
CNN reports prosecutors want stricter sentences than recommended by the state if Chauvin and the three other officers involved are found guilty.
The state also argues that the case has aggravated circumstances because Floyd was particularly vulnerable in handcuffs.
