Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis cop charged with murdering George Floyd has been moved to one of the most secure prisons in the US that accepts most hated and high-risk inmates.
We confirmed in a report that Chauvin was transferred late Sunday to Oak Park Heights Prison, Minnesota's only Level Five maximum security facility.
The prison is located on the border with Wisconsin, between the cities of Bayport and Stillwater. Chauvin was due to appear in court on Monday but his appearance has been pushed back until June 8, due to the ongoing protests over George Floyd's death.
According to recent data released by the Minnesota Department of Corrections, the Oak Park Heights Prison currently houses 297 murderers, 69 sexual predators, and eight kidnappers. Some 46 percent of the prison population is black.
