Six Officers Indicted in Death of Gray

Freddie Gray death: Grand jury indicts police officers

Six Baltimore police officers were indicted Thursday on charges connected to the death of Freddie Gray. The indictments came after prosecutors presented evidence to a grand jury for two weeks, Baltimore City State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby said.

Gray's death last month after allegedly suffering a devastating spinal injury while in police custody sparked protests and riots in Baltimore. The six officers face charges that, if they are convicted, could lead to decades in prison, based on their alleged actions that day. Among them: Illegal arrest, misconduct, assault and involuntary manslaughter.
