(Minneapolis, MN) -- Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin will face a third-degree murder charge. A judge made that decision today in the trial of the former cop who's accused of killing George Floyd. The move came after the Minnesota Supreme Court refused to get involved in the case yesterday. Chauvin was already facing second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter charges. The Minnesota Court of Appeals said last week that Hennepin County Judge Peter Cahill must "reconsider" the third-degree murder charge.
