SHOW TRANSCRIPT

The four ex-cops charged in George Floyd's killing will be tried in a single trial in Minneapolis.

A county judge rejected a defense request for a change of venue and also ruled that all four men will be tried at the same time for charges related to the death of Floyd.

Former officer Derek Chauvin's charges are second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter for kneeling on Floyd's neck for nearly 8 minutes, despite Floyd telling the officers that he couldn't breathe. The death spurred a movement against police brutality across the world.

The judge did grant a request to allow cameras in the courtroom, the trial is scheduled for March 8.
