Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin and his ex-wife entered not guilty pleas to tax evasion Friday, reports the New York Daily News.
Chauvin is already serving prison time after being convicted in the murder of George Floyd.
The couple is accused of underreporting more than $464,000 in joint income. They also face six counts of filing fraudulent returns and three counts of failing to file tax returns.
According to Revolt TV, the complaint states that Kellie told Derek after learning of an investigation that she would meet with someone about “2016 to now.”
Chauvin then stated they use “who we have used to handle for many years,” the complaint alleged.
“Yeah, well, we don’t want to get your dad involved, because he will just be mad at me, I mean us, not doing them for years,” Kellie responded.
Conan and Daily reports Kellie filed for divorce shortly after the murder charges, but a judge rejected her divorce filing and stated he suspected possible fraud. However, four months later the divorce was approved and she received a $704,000 divorce settlement. Derek was left with $421,000.
The couple married in 2011. She won the 2019 United States of America’s Mrs. Minnesota pageant.
