An adjudicator decided on Thursday that the preliminary of three previous Minneapolis cops accused of supporting and abetting in the demise of George Floyd will be postponed until March 2020 to permit a government claim against the three to continue first.
Thomas Lane, J. Kueng, and Tou Thao were booked to stand preliminary on August 23 on charges of homicide and murder.
Derek Chauvin, the three officials’ co-litigant, were seen as liable of second-and third-degree murder, just as second-degree homicide, by a Minneapolis jury a month ago subsequent to hearing proof, for example, that he put his knee on Floyd’s neck for over nine minutes.
Information on the delay of the preliminary against Lane, J. Kueng and Thao came during a consultation on pretrial movements. AP reports that the guard lawyers for each of the three consented to the deferment.
The preliminary of the three previous cops was isolated from Chauvin’s to follow COVID-19 court dispersing limitations.
