Baltimore: Setback in Trial of 3rd Officer Charged in Freddie Gray Death

HeadlineJul 06, 2016

This comes as Baltimore prosecutors have been dealt a blow in the next trial of a police officer charged in the death of Freddie Gray, who died of spinal injuries sustained in police custody last year. On Tuesday, a judge ruled prosecutors cannot introduce evidence related to officer Brian Rice’s training during his trial, which begins Thursday. His training was key to the prosecutors’ case. Two police officers have already been acquitted on all charges for their role in Freddie Gray’s death.
