Officer Derek Chauvin who has been charged with the third-degree murder of George Floyd will receive divorce papers from his wife. NBC News reports Kellie Chauvin is calling it quits after 10 ears of marriage.
In a statement issued to media outlets, Kellie stated she is devastated by the killing of Floyd last week, which leads to the divorce.
“Her utmost sympathy lies with [Floyd’s] family, with his loved ones and with everyone who is grieving this tragedy,” the statement read in part. “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.”
Yesterday (May 29), Chauvin was charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter after he he’d his knee to the neck of Floyd for over 8 minutes
