A jury on Tuesday returned a verdict finding former police officer Derek Chauvin guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the death of George Floyd last year, but three other former officers have yet to go on trial.

The three men, J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao, are all free on $750,000 bail and the trial is slated to start later this year on August 23, according to the New York Post

"They face charges of aiding and abetting second-degree murder as well as second-degree manslaughter over the May 2020 death of Floyd. They face up to 40 years in prison on the top charge," the outlet noted.
