BALTIMORE – Six police officers have been indicted in the death of Freddie Gray, Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby said Thursday.
The officers are scheduled to be arraigned on July 2.
Gray died last month after allegedly suffering a devastating injury while in police custody. The case sparked protests and riots across Baltimore.
Earlier this month, Mosby said that charges had been filed against six officers in Gray’s death, an unexpected announcement that brought cheers from protesters and words of protest from the police union.
Attorneys for the officers have called for Mosby to be taken off the case, arguing that she has conflicts of interest — an accusation Mosby denies.
