the city and protests across the country.
Gray died from a spinal injury suffered in the back of a police transport van, and six Baltimore officers have been charged in his death. A judge last week refused to dismiss the charges against the officers and ordered individual trials for them.
He was originally taken into police custody for carrying a pocket knife that was later deemed legal to carry.
|6 Officers Arrested|
All six officers, including Edward Nero and Garrett Miller, are charged with second-degree assault, misconduct in office and reckless endangerment.
Lt. Brian Rice, Sgt. Alicia White and Officer William Porter also face a manslaughter charge, while Officer Caesar Goodson faces the most serious charge of all: second-degree "depraved-heart" murder.
Three of the officers are black and three are white. Their attorneys have asked the judge in the case to move their trials out of the city. The hearing is set for Thursday.
