Grand jury returns indictment for all 6 Baltimore cops linked to death of Freddie Gray
Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced on Thursday that a grand jury has indicted all six officers involved in the arrest of 25-year-old Freddie Gray earlier this year.
The six officers — Alicia White, Brian Rice, William Porter, Edward Nero, Garrett Miller, and Caesar Goodson — face charges including assault, manslaughter and various types of misconduct in office in connection with the death of Gray after he was taken into custody. His death was later determined to be a homicide.
Mosby took no questions following her announcement, but added that the officers will be arraigned on July 2.

Goodson faces the most charges: one count of second-degree “depraved heart murder;” one count of manslaughter; two counts of manslaughter by vehicle; one count apiece of second-degree assault, misconduct in office and reckless endangerment.
Rice is charged with involuntary manslaughter; two counts of misconduct in office; and one count each of reckless endangerment and second-degree assault.

Miller and Nero both face charges of reckless endangerment; second-degree assault; and two counts each of misconduct in office.
