In a short video in Minneapolis, US, Roxie said she wanted justice for Floyd because he was a good man and Gianna was the proof, pointing to her daughter.

The emotional lady said she wanted everyone to know that Gianna was denied the chance of ever seeing her father again and the late Floyd would never see her grow up and graduate school.
