Wife of Minneapolis Police officer charged in George Floyd’s death has filed for divorce.
Reports from ABC news says that Kellie Chauvin, through her attorney, expressed condolences to Floyd’s family and said she’s filed for dissolution of her marriage.
Derek Chauvin was arrested and charged Friday with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in Floyd’s death.

Three other officers were fired in connection to Floyd’s death, but they have not been taken into custody or charged as of Friday night.
