All 4 cops charged in Minnesota killing

 Minnesota officials charged three additional police officers on Wednesday in the death of George Floyd, and added a new enhanced charge against the officer who held his knee to Mr. Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes, according to court filings.

The three former officers, Thomas Lane, J. Alexander Kueng and Tou Thao, were charged with aiding and abetting murder,  court records show.

The fourth officer, Derek Chauvin, 44, who was arrested last week, faces an increased charge of second-degree murder.

All four officers were quickly fired from the Minneapolis Police Department after video of the encounter emerged. Officers arrested Mr. Floyd on the evening of May 25 after a store employee called the police, saying that someone had used a counterfeit $20 bill to buy cigarettes.
