Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on Tuesday requested a new trial after being convicted in April of second-degree murder and other charges in the death of George Floyd.

In a series of motions filed Attorney Eric J. Nelson, saying that Chauvin was denied a fair trial due to “prosecutorial and jury misconduct; errors of law at trial,” and that the resulting jury’s verdict was “contrary to law.”

A 12-member jury found Chauvin guilty and he was convicted in April of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter for the death of George Floyd.
