Wife of George Floyd's Accused Killer Derek Chauvin Demands Divorce from Ex-Cop

Source: DAILY BEAST

Kellie Chauvin, the wife of the former Minneapolis police officer charged in the death of George Floyd, has announced she is “devastated” over the situation and is divorcing her husband, according to CBS Minnesota. In a statement, a representative told the news station that her “utmost sympathy lies with his [Floyd’s] family, with his loved ones and with everyone who is grieving tragedy.” She is said to have already filed for the dissolution of her marriage to the former police officer, and asks for “privacy during this difficult time.”

26. Says someone who has never been in an abusive relationship

Which is what this seems to be. I've been in a bad relationship with an abusive cop, and it is scary AF, and very difficult to leave. I find her brave and compassionate.

But go ahead and denounce her.

33. I'm very sorry...

About your past abusive relationship...I can only imagine how scary that must be for anyone but for you, like a lot of cop’s spouses, girlfriends or boyfriends, to caught in an abusive relationship with cop must be as bad as they get.
...And that’s why my 1st thoughts, despite being a straight male & thankfully never having to have dealt with that in my life, I’m with you my mind jump straight to this woman finally has a chance at freedom!
...Then I scroll down & start to 2nd guess myself???
...Not that I Hope she’s an abused woman but if she is doing what the other commenters have suggested then she’s just about as scumming as her murdering hubby!
...Of course I don’t know them but I would be very surprised if they were even worth enough for such a act of desperation to be worth it after cost of everything shakes out!?!?

Again, so sorry about your past...Hope you’ve found happier times since.

28. Yup, the best time she's ever had to leave an abusive cop

His teeth will be dulled now, and he can't send his buddies after her to harass her everywhere around town, which is what happens whe you try and l3ave a cop. Or, you wind up dead, like most of convicted murderer Drew Peterson's wives.

It’s not mentioned in her statement or the story about her. If he’s capable of murder, however, he’s capable of anything.

It could be that his being behind bars presents her with the safety to leave. Some abusive types don't take it well when their victims try to flee.

Or not.

But could be.

37. Not a lawyer but...

If my googling/years-of-crime-drama-watching is correct:
The accused can object to/prevent their spouse testifying against them.
A spouse can refuse a subpoena to testify against their current spouse.
But neither of those privileges appear to survive past divorce. (The couple must be married at the time of assertion of the privilege, which I presume to mean at the time of the trial/deposition)

There is also a privilege of protected "marital communication" which appears to extend even after divorce (but pertains only to communications during the marriage, and appears to cover only one-to-one communications, not things a spouse overhears.)

I'm sure there's enough complexity there for some lawyers to make some money off of.

47. I Was On A Jury In March

The ex-wife testified against the defendant in that trial.
We found the guy NG, but she did, in fact testify.
Might be different by state, but in IL there doesn't appear to be any barrier to divorced people testifying against an ex.

You gotta know that he was an abusive bastard at home. And she couldn't call the police, because he was the police. Hell, his arrest was probably the break that she needed to GTFO of the house!

45. So much speculation. Maybe it's exactly as she says.

He's a murderous piece of shit, and she wants nothing to do with.
Yes, she's probably going to take his money, but that's how divorce works.
This fucking pig deserves every bit of harm that comes his way. In this case, this will be a real quick divorce.

I understand she's a real estate agent.
If she's any good at it, she makes way more fucking money than a cop does.
