George Floyd's girlfriend: "We demonized him and killed him"

From CNN's Gregory Lemos

George Floyd's girlfriend told CBS News correspondent Jeff Pegues that the video of Floyd's death makes it clear to her that he was murdered. 

"This was nothing but an angel on earth. We demonized him and killed him," Courtney Ross told Pegues on Thursday. "I don't know if I'm sad or mad." 

Ross called Floyd a "gentle giant and a loving father" and the man she "loved for three years."  

"You know, I just want to get on the phone and call my baby and hear his voice," Ross said. "He cannot die in vain."
