Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer charged in the killing of George Floyd, has been released from jail on a $1 million bond.
Chauvin, 44, is facing murder and manslaughter charges after video showed him kneeling on Floyd’s neck for about eight minutes during an arrest on May 25.
His unconditional bail was set at $1.25 million, or $1 million with conditions; according to the Hennepin County Sheriff’s roster, he was released on conditional bail.
Chauvin is expected to appear in court in March of next year, according to his notice of release filed in court.
Three other former officers charged as accomplices in Floyd’s death had all previously been released after posting bail.
