A Maryland state judge in Baltimore denied a motion to dismiss the charges against the six officers accused in Freddie Gray’s death, and also denied a motion to have Baltimore prosecutor Marilyn Mosby recuse herself.
The defense had sought Mosby’s recusal because her husband, Nick Mosby, is a councilman in a Baltimore district that experienced unrest. Circuit Court Judge Barry G. Williams called this argument against Mosby “condescending,” according to CNN.
The Baltimore Sun:
“In a victory for city State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby, a judge on Wednesday denied motions to dismiss charges against six Baltimore police officers charged in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray and to recuse Mosby’s office from the case.
The hearing will resume at 2 p.m. when prosecutors and defense attorneys are expected to argue if the trial against the officers should be split up.”
