"This evening, I spoke with Kellie Chauvin and her family. She is devastated by Mr. Floyd’s death and her utmost sympathy lies with his family, with his loved ones and with everyone who is grieving this tragedy. She has filed for dissolution of her marriage to Derek Chauvin," the Sekula Law Office said in a statement Friday night. "While Ms. Chauvin has no children from her current marriage, she respectfully requests that her children, her elder parents, and her extended family be given safety and privacy during this difficult time."

Derek has been reportedly granted a $500,000 bail,although the bond has yet to be posted.It has generated a lot of anger from people,who think he should not have been granted bail at all and should have been charged with a 1st degree murder,rather than the 3rd which he has been charged with.
