Prosecutors Seek Delay In George Floyd Murder Trial

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Prosecutors handling the Minneapolis case involving four former police officers charged in the death of George Floyd have asked that the trial be delayed by three months, citing coronavirus concerns, according to a report.

In a recently filed court motion, prosecutors cited the COVID-19 pandemic and the amount of time needed before enough people are vaccinated and health risks are sufficiently diminished as their reason for the request, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported.

The trial has been scheduled for March 8 for the four now-fired police officers charged in the death of Floyd on May 25 while he was detained on a south Minneapolis street corner.
