Fall Trial Date Set for 6 Cops Charged in Freddie Gray Death

6 baltimore police officers in freddie gray death1

*The six Baltimore police officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray will go on trial on Oct. 13 in a case that sparked rioting and protests, a rep for State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby said on Monday.

The trial is set for Maryland’s Circuit Court for Baltimore City.

The officers have been charged in the April death of Freddie Gray, 25, who died from a spinal injury suffered in police custody. Widespread protests in the predominantly black city after Gray’s death turned into a day of rioting, and National Guard troops were deployed to restore order.

Charges for the six range from second-degree murder and assault to false imprisonment and misconduct in office. Arraignment had been slated for July 2 but an administrative judge canceled the hearing when the suspects entered not-guilty pleas and requested a jury trial, the Baltimore Sun reported.

Three of the officers are black and three are white.
