According to the prosecution, there was an issue in adding the third-degree murder count for the death of George Floyd. 

Chauvin’s defense attorney said that he also intended to ask the state Supreme Court to review the appeals court’s decision on that charge.

Despite the appeals for a delay, Judge Peter Cahil said that the trial will proceed.

“Unless the Court of Appeals tells me otherwise, we’re going to keep moving,” said Cahill. 

The jury selection is expected to begin at 9 a.m. local time after the delay, an hour before the pretrial motions.
