Officer charged in Floyd’s death held on $1 million bail

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A former Minneapolis police officer charged with second-degree murder in George Floyd’s death will remain in custody on $1 million bail.

Derek Chauvin said little during an 11-minute hearing Monday in which he appeared on closed-circuit television from the state’s maximum security prison in Oak Park Heights.

His attorney, Eric Nelson, did not contest the bail amount, nor did he address the substance of the charges in court.

Nelson didn’t speak with reporters afterward and hasn’t commented publicly on the case since the former officer was arrested last month.

Chauvin’s next appearance is set for June 29.
