Freddie Gray’s death ruled a homicide, cops charged with murder and manslaughter

The charges against the six officers involved include second-degree murder, manslaughter, assault, misconduct, and false imprisonment. A warrant has also been issued for their arrest.

The death of Freddie Gray has been ruled a homicide by the Baltimore State Attorney Marilyn Mosby.

The charges against the six officers involved include second-degree murder, manslaughter, assault, misconduct, and false imprisonment. A warrant has also been issued for their arrest.

Mosby said during a press conference that the initial arrest of Freddie Gray was illegal, and that the severe neck injury he suffered was a result of being shackled without a seat belt while being transported in the police van.

Here are the charges, as recounted by Gawker:

Officer Caesar R. Goodson, 45, who was driving the police van, was charged with second degree murder, three counts of manslaughter, assault in the second degree, and misconduct.

Officer William Porter, 25, was charged with involuntary manslaughter, second degree assault, and misconduct.
Lt. Brian W. Rice, 41, was charged with involuntary manslaughter, two counts of second degree assault, two counts of misconduct, and one count of false imprisonment.

Officer Edward M. Nero, 29, was charged with two counts of second degree assault, two counts of misconduct, and one count of false imprisonment.

Officer Garret E. Miller, 26, was charged with two counts of second degree assault, two counts of misconduct, and one count of false imprisonment. And Sgt. Alicia D. White, 30, was charged with manslaughter, second degree assault, and misconduct.

“To the people of Baltimore and the demonstrators across America, I heard your call for ‘no justice, no peace.’ Your peace is sincerely needed as I work to deliver justice on behalf of this young man,” Mosby said.
