It is specified that now he is accused of murder not of the third, but of the second degree. In this regard, he may face even harsher punishment than anticipated if convicted.

African American George Floyd passed away in late May, shortly after being detained by police officers. One of the group of policemen held him, pressing his neck with his knee.

Floyd's death led to riots in dozens of US cities, which continue to this day.
