Floyd suspect asks for murder charge dismissal

Derek Chauvin, former police officer indicted with the killing of George Floyd, on Saturday asked the judge to dismiss the murder charges against him.

Chauvin's lawyers claimed there is not sufficient evidence to charge him with second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter.

Chauvin was charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter after he was filmed kneeling George Floyd's neck before he died.
