New York Daily News: Ex-cops charged in George Floyd death point fingers at each other ahead of 1st joint court appearance


Attorneys for the four ex-cops charged in the killing of George Floyd were expected to argue for separate trials during a joint court appearance Friday morning in Minneapolis. The lawyers say their clients are likely to offer “antagonistic” defenses and that evidence against one suspect could prevent another’s right to a fair trial. They’re also seeking a sequestered and anonymous jury and have asked the case to be moved away from Hennepin County, saying the ongoing publicity has made it impossible for the four men to defend themselves.
