The three other Minneapolis police officers involved in the arrest that led to the death of George Floyd are now being charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder.

Thomas Lane, J. Kueng and Tou Thao had been fired along with Derek Chauvin, who was seen on video pressing his knee into the black man's neck for several minutes.

Chauvin was originally charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter, but those counts are now upgraded to a charge of second-degree murder.
