Ex-cop charged in Floyd’s death faces tax evasion counts

Derek Chauvin

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The former Minneapolis police officer charged with murder in the death of George Floyd has been charged with multiple felony counts of tax evasion.

Derek Chauvin and his wife, Kellie May Chauvin, were charged Wednesday in Washington County.

They are each charged with six counts related to filing false tax returns dating back to the 2014 tax year, and three counts of failing to file returns for 2016, 2017 and 2018.

Chauvin is currently in custody in connection with Floyd's May 25 death. Prosecutors say Kellie Chauvin, who has filed for divorce, is not in custody. Online court records don't show that either has an attorney in the tax evasion case.
