Maryland – Motions hearing to begin for 4th officer’s trial


A motions hearing will be held ahead of the fourth Baltimore police officer to go trial for charges stemming from the death of 25-year-old prisoner Freddie Gray whose neck was broken while being transported in the back of a police wagon. The pre-trial motions for the trial of Lt. Brian Rice begin Tuesday. Rice is charged with manslaughter, assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office. Two other police officers charged in the case were acquitted, and a third officer’s case was declared a mistrial. Rice is the highest-ranking officer to go to trial in the case.
