All four former police officers involved in the death of George Floyd now face criminal charges and are in custody.

Tou Thao, Thomas Lane, and J Alexander Keung all face aiding and abetting second-degree unintentional murder, as well as aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter, according to court records. Lane reportedly turned himself in.

All three men are scheduled to make their first court appearances on Thursday.

Derek Chauvin's murder charge has been upgraded to second-degree unintentional murder, although he still faces third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. Chauvin is the man who was seen kneeling on Floyd's neck.

"History does show there are clear challenges here," said Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison during a press conference Wednesday afternoon. "We are working hard to rely on each other and our investigating partners and community to support that endeavor."
