    The law of 2nd degree murder in Minnesota is stricter though and applies to more. And the more I read the statute I can see who they proved it to the jury.

    Here is the text:



    To me, it looks like it would apply to Subdivision 2 Part 1 and the Unintentional murder, which comes with the same sentencing guidelines. I guess they all fall under the same umbrella. So they would have to believe that Chauvin was committing a felony with force of violence. I can see that and them coming to that conclusion. I think manslaughter applies as well, but this one is tougher and I can see them having convicted of the man charges and not the murder.

    Either way, he was guilty of something as you said.
    while committing or attempting to commit a felony offense
    The above part is what I get caught on. Not sure what felony offense he was committing but I didn't watch enough to know the whole thing. I wouldn't be surprised if some of it gets knocked down on appeal. Still be in prison for a good long time.

    Same here, but I think they believed that he committed a felony by his actions on his neck. I suppose if they think his actions were so egregious and beyond policy to the level of criminal. Only thing that may make sense to me. But the manslaughter charges are easy to make a case against him.
