[BET] J. Alexander Keung was arrested and charged with aiding and abetting murder and manslaughter in the May 25 killing of George Floyd. In court docs filed Monday, June 29, it was revealed that the former police officer will argue self-defense.
According to NBC News, Keung, 26, will plead not guilty and “will argue he acted in self-defense and used reasonable, authorized force to detain Floyd.”
It’s not clear how his attorney will argue or prove self-defense nor how the other three officers will plead. Hennepin County District Judge Peter Cahill hasn’t decided if the four officers will be tried jointly or separately.
