In the second day of a Baltimore police van driver's murder trial, prosecutors have called to the witness stand a doctor who did an autopsy on a man who died after his neck was broken in the back of the van.

Officer Caesar Goodson is charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter and other offenses stemming from Freddie Gray's death. Gray died April 19, a week after his spine was snapped in Goodson's van.

The state on Friday called its eighth witness, assistant medical examiner Carol Allan, who ruled Gray's death a homicide.

Prosecutors say Goodson gave Gray a "rough ride" and failed to call for medical help. Goodson's attorneys say Goodson did nothing wrong and followed orders.

Prosecutors will call more witnesses to the stand to try and prove that a police van driver committed second-degree murder when he allegedly took a 25-year-old black man, who was handcuffed and shackled, for a "rough ride."

Officer Caesar Goodson's trial in the death of Freddie Gray began Thursday.

Gray died April 19, 2015, a week after his neck was broken in Goodson's wagon.

Prosecutors say Goodson intentionally meant to hurt Gray by not buckling him into a seat belt and speeding, running a stop sign and making a sharp turn.

Goodson's defense attorneys say the rough ride never happened and that Gray's injuries were self-inflicted when the man stood up inside a moving vehicle.
