Derek Chauvin requests new trial as he claims he was not given a fair one Updated: 2021-05-07 13:50:48 KST

The attorney for Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer convicted of murdering George Floyd, has requested a retrial, saying his client was not able to get a fair trial because of pretrial publicity, and the court's refusal to change the venue.
The petition filed Wednesday said the court had abused its discretion.
Chauvin was convicted of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
He had knelt on Floyd's neck for more than nine minutes as Floyd was handcuffed and struggling to breathe.
Chauvin now awaits sentencing in the coming weeks.
