His wife, Kellie, who filed for divorce in May, is also facing the same charges and will make her first court appearance on Oct. 29. 

A criminal complaint states the Chauvins filed a late return in 2014, a timely return in 2015 and then failed to file from 2016 through 2018.

Additionally, investigators learned Derek didn't file tax documents for all of his off-duty jobs and Kellie, who is a licensed realtor and also operates a photography business called KC Images, didn't report 340 checks made out to her or KC Images with a memo line stating "photos" as income in 2014 or 2015.
