MINNEAPOLIS. (KEYC) - Three former Minneapolis police officers involved in George Floyd’s arrest and death have appeared in federal court following a grand jury indictment.

Thomas Lane, Tou Thao and J. Kueng appeared Friday via videoconference. The charges against them were not read in open court, but a grand jury was investigating whether they and former officer Derek Chauvin violated Floyd’s civil rights. Floyd died May 25 after Chauvin pressed a knee against his neck to hold him on the ground. Chauvin has already been convicted on state murder and manslaughter charges. The other three face state trial in August.
