Attorneys for Kellie Chauvin said on Friday she is seeking the “dissolution of her marriage” to Chauvin.
“She is devastated by Mr. Floyd’s death,” a statement on behalf of Kellie Chauvin and her family read. “Her utmost sympathy lies with his family, his loved ones and with everyone who is grieving.”
The letter said Kellie Chauvin doesn’t have any children from her current marriage.
Her husband, Derek Chauvin was arrested and charged on Friday with third degree murder and manslaughter in connection with Floyd’s death.
The killing of the black man by the white cop with his hands in his pockets has prompted nationwide protests that have turned violent in a number of cities.
Chauvin and three other officers were fired Tuesday in connection with Floyd’s death on Monday. The other officers have not been charged with any crimes, although authorities have said that may change.
