Bail has been set at $500,000 for Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer who killed George Floyd when he knelt on his neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds.
The criminal complaint filed in the 4th Judicial District Court of Minnesota did not indicate if Chauvin is still in custody, but it states could be released if he comes up with $500K in collateral.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch…Derek’s wife, Kellie Chauvin is cashing out on her marriage.
Kellie released a statement through her attorney saying she has filed for divorce after 10 years of marriage and she’s devastated by the death of George Floyd and her sympathy lies with his family.
Sekula Law Offices released the following statement via Facebook:
This evening, I spoke with Kellie Chauvin and her family. She is devastated by Mr. Floyd’s death and her utmost sympathy lies with his family, with his loved ones and with everyone who is grieving this tragedy. She has filed for the dissolution of her marriage to Derek Chauvin.
While Ms. Chauvin has no children from her current marriage, she respectfully requests that her children, her elder parents, and her extended family be given safety and privacy during this difficult time.
See the original post below:
There is a rumor circulating online that claims Kellie is the sister of Tou Thao, one of the other officers responsible for George’s death.
I have found absolutely NOTHING confirming the validity of that rumor.
