Kellie Chauvin Wiki – Biography
Kellie Chauvin is the wife of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter in connection with the death of George Floyd.
Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said in a press conference on Friday, May 29, 2020: “The investigation is ongoing. We felt it appropriate to focus on the most dangerous perpetrator. I must say that this case has moved with extraordinary speed. This conduct, this criminal action, took place on Monday evening, May 25th, Memorial day. I’m speaking to you at 1:00 on Friday, May 29th. That’s less than four days. That’s extraordinary. We have never charged a case in that kind of timeframe, and we can only charge a case when we have sufficient admissible evidence to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt…
“We have charged this case as quickly as sufficient admissible evidence to charge it has been investigated and presented to us… We have now been able to put together the evidence that we need. Even as late as yesterday afternoon, we didn’t have all that we needed. We have now found it, and we felt a responsibility to charge this as soon as possible.
“I’m not going to talk specifically about this piece of evidence or that piece of evidence… I can only talk about what’s in the complaint. … Now, let me just quickly say we have evidence. We have the citizens’ cameras, video, that horrible, horrific, terrible thing that we have all seen over and over again. We have the officer’s body-worn camera. We have statements from some witnesses. We have a preliminary report from the medical examiner. We have discussions with an expert. All of that has come together, so we felt, in our professional judgment, it was time to charge, and we have so done.”
