A Baltimore grand jury has handed down indictments against the six police officers charged in the April 19 death of Freddie Gray, according to NBC News. Gray suffered a fatal spinal injury after his arrest and transport by the six cops. Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced the indictments, noting that in a few cases, the charges brought by the grand jury were more serious than those leveled by her office at the time the six were arrested.
On May 1, Mosby held a dramatic news conference to announce criminal charges in the case that set off a week of anger and unrest in the city. The driver of the van that transported Gray, Officer Caesar R. Goodson Jr., was charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter, assault and misconduct in office; Lt. Brian W. Rice was charged with manslaughter, assault, misconduct in office and false imprisonment; Officer William G. Porter and Sgt. Alicia D. White were charged with manslaughter, assault and misconduct in office; and Officers Edward M. Nero and Garrett E. Miller were charged with assault, misconduct in office and false imprisonment.
All six will be arraigned Tuesday.
