BALTIMORE – Two more officers charged in the death of a 25-year-old black man in police custody have filed suit against Baltimore's top prosecutor.
Officers Edward Nero and Garrett Miller, who were charged with misdemeanors in the death of Freddie Gray, have sued State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby and Maj. Sam Cogen of the sheriff's office for defamation of character, violation of rights and false imprisonment.
Nero was acquitted last month. Miller is scheduled to stand trial in July.
Three other officers already have filed similar lawsuits in state and federal court.
The suits allege that Mosby intentionally filed false charges against the officers.
The only officer who has not filed suit is Caesar Goodson, the wagon driver who is scheduled to stand trial on a second-degree murder charge Thursday.
