A pre-trial hearing was held today for the four former Minneapolis police officers charged in the death of George Floyd.

Derek Chauvin, who knelt on Floyd's neck for several minutes, is charged with second-degree murder and other counts.

The other four are charged with aiding and abetting.

Floyd's uncle Selwyn Jones says he hopes the trials will not come to nothing.

A judge has warned he's likely to move the trials out of Minneapolis if public officials, attorneys and family members don't stop speaking out about the case.
