The judge also set a $1 million bail option for Chauvin with certain conditions, prohibiting contact with Floydâ€™s family and traveling outside of Minnesota without permission.
Chauvin made his first court appearance via video monitor from Oak Park Heights prison, where he is being held, exactly two weeks after Floydâ€™s killing. He has been charged with second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in Floydâ€™s death.
Bystander video captured Chauvin, who is white, kneeling on Floydâ€™s neck as he stated repeatedly that he couldnâ€™t breathe.
