Three more police officers have been charged in connection with the murder of George Floyd.

Details of charges against Thomas Lane, Tou Thao and J Alexander Keung Tuesday have not yet been announced, and it is unclear whether those three officers will be charged with the same offence as Derek Chauvin. Chauvin, who was last week charged in connection with Floyd’s death, has since seen his charge upgraded from third-degree murder to second-degree murder, according to Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar.

Klobuchar wrote: “Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison is increasing charges against Derek Chauvin to 2nd degree in George Floyd’s murder and also charging other 3 officers. This is another important step for justice.”

Floyd, 46, died in Minneapolis on May 25 following an altercation with police officers. The incident has since led to hundreds protesting on the streets in Minnesota.

Chauvin was sacked following Floyd’s death, and was later charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter.

At the time, musicians including Janelle Monáe and Ice Cube led calls for justice in the US following the death along with John Boyega.

Results from an independent autopsy earlier this week confirmed that Floyd died due to to asphyxiation resulting from pressure applied to his back and neck. These results differed from an initial autopsy that did not find evidence of “traumatic asphyxia or strangulation”, and that underlying health conditions played a role in the unarmed man’s death [via BBC].

Meanwhile, people in the UK were tonight (June 3) encouraged to undertake a peaceful protest from their doorsteps in support of Floyd and Black Lives Matter.

Stand Up to Racism (SUTR) led a “take the knee” protest to show support for the anti-racist protests that began in the US last week.
