The pre-trail hearing for six officers accused of murdering Freddie Gray, 25, begins today [Sept.1]. Caesar R. Goodson Jr., the driver of the police van in which Gray was injured, is charged with second-degree depraved-heart murder while the others face manslaughter and second-degree assault.

Judge Barry Glenn Williams listens to arguments of dismissal due to the actions of State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby. Attorneys argue for dismissal due to statements made by Mosby when announcing the charges against the officers. Her role in the independent investigation of Gray’s death have “tainted the pool of potential jurors for their trial,” according to the Baltimore Sun.
