Trial for Freddie Gray Van Driver to Start Soon

Circuit Judge Barry Williams will hold a motions hearing Monday in the trial for Officer Caesar Goodson, who faces second-degree murder, manslaughter, assault, misconduct in office and reckless endangerment charges stemming from Freddie Gray’s death.

The 25-year-old Gray died last year, a week after his neck was broken in the van Goodson was driving. Prosecutors say he failed in his duty by not buckling Gray into a seat belt. Goodson is asking Williams to suppress statements made by another officer to an investigator, as well as portions of Gray’s autopsy report.

Last month, a judge cleared Baltimore Police Officer Edward Nero of charges of second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct while in office. Nero was the second of six officers charged in Gray’s death. The first officer, William Porter, had a trial that resulted in a mistrial in January.
