Chauvin is charged with unintentional second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter Attorneys for fired Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin have asked a judge to block prosecutors from introducing prior use-of-force incidents at trial, including an incident in which he knelt on a 14-year-old boy’s back. Chauvin is charged with unintentional second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the May 25 death of George Floyd, a black man who died after Chauvin knelt on his neck for several minutes. In a motion filed on Monday, prosecutors said that bodycam footage of prior arrests showed that ‘when faced with a suspect who does not immediately comply with his demands, Chauvin intentionally uses a level of unreasonable force to accomplish subdual and restraint,’ according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. Chauvin’s defense attorney responded by arguing that the force used in incidents cited was in keeping with department’s then-policy on dealing with uncooperative suspects, saying it was irrelevant for the trial.
