BALTIMORE – Prosecutors will likely rest their case Monday against an officer facing charges stemming from the arrest and subsequent death of a man who died after being injured in a police van and could call to the stand another officer charged in the case.
Officer Edward Nero is facing assault, misconduct in office and reckless endangerment charges stemming from Freddie Gray's arrest.
Gray died April 19 of last year, a week after his neck was broken in the back of a police transport van while he was in handcuffs and leg irons but left unrestrained by a seat belt.
Prosecutors have indicated they plan to call Officer Garrett Miller, who's awaiting trial on the same charges as Nero, to testify against him. Baltimore Circuit Judge Barry Williams said prosecutors asked for three days to make their case. Nero's trial began Thursday.
