Federal prosecutors plan to ask a grand jury to indict the four former Minneapolis police officers involved in the fatal arrest of George Floyd on charges of civil rights violations, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. 

Derek Chauvin, one of the four former officers, was found guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the death of Floyd last week. 

J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao face aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter charges in connection to the May 25, 2020 incident. 

According to a source, the charges against Kueng, Lane and Thao would remain in place until the federal process is done.
