Murder and manslaughter charges for six officers in Freddie Gray’s death

The six officers who arrested Freddie Gray have received a variety of criminal charges from Maryland State Attorney Marilyn Mosby, reports the Baltimore Sun.

Gray died in police custody last month. Over the past weeks, protests have erupted in Baltimore and across the country.

The Sun outlines the charges which include second-degree murder, assault, manslaughter, misconduct and more.

Officer Caesar Goodson Jr., 45, who was the driver of a police van that carried Gray through the streets of Baltimore, was charged with second-degree murder, assault, manslaughter, misconduct and other charges.

Officer William Porter, 25, and Lt. Brian Rice, 41, were charged with involuntary manslaughter.

Sgt. Alicia White, 30, was charged with manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter. Officer Edward Nero, 29, and Officer Garrett Miller, 26, were charged with assault and misconduct.

The Fraternal Order of Police has expressed concerns that Mosby has several conflicts of interest in the case because of her relationship with Gray family attorney, reports the Sun.
