Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Barry Williams on Wednesday rejected defense motions to drop charges against six police officers in the case of a black man who died in April from injuries in police custody.

Williams also rejected a motion from the defense calling for Marilyn Mosby, the state's attorney for Baltimore, and her office to recuse themselves from the Freddie Gray case.
