Judge Peter Cahill today reinstated the 3rd-degree murder charge against former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd. The Minnesota Supreme Court on Wednesday denied the defense’s request for a review of the 3rd-degree charge against Chauvin. That was in response to a previous decision by the Minnesota Appeals Court. Cahill said today’s decision does not apply to the other three former officers whose cases are set to be tried in August and “we’ll address that later.”The state has been pushing for the charge to be reinstated. The defense has argued it saying that the Chauvin case is different from the Mohammed Noor case, which set precedent. Noor is the former officer convicted of killing Justine Damond in South Minneapolis in July 2017.
