The wife of the Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin who is currently charged with murder of George Floyd has filed for divorce.

This is coming days after the U.S police officer got involved in the death of George Floyd, a black American, after he knelt on his neck and he was screaming “I can’t breathe”.

According to one of her attorneys; “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 dissolution of her marriage to Derek Chauvin,” the Sekula Law Office said in a statement Friday night.

“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.”

Following his involvement in Floyd‘s death, Chauvin was arrested and charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter on Friday.

However, more arrests and charges are anticipated, according to Hennepin County Attorney, Michael Freeman.

Meanwhile, in another news, former U.S president, Barack Obama has reacted to George Floyd’s death.
