BALTIMORE (AP) — A Baltimore judge will rule on several motions ahead of the trial for one of the police officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray.
Baltimore Circuit Judge Barry Williams will hold a hearing Tuesday on several crucial motions that will influence the scope of the proceedings for Officer Edward Nero, and could significantly limit what information about Gray’s arrest will be available during the trial, scheduled to begin Wednesday. Prosecutors have asked to push the trial back to Thursday.
Nero faces assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office. Gray died April 19, 2015, a week after suffering a critical spinal injury in the back of a police van. Six officers including Nero face charges stemming from his arrest, injury and death.Related:Hung jury in 1st officer’s trial in Freddie Gray case
