Day Two of Goodson Trial in Baltimore

June 10th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

Court resumed at 9:50 this morning in the trial of Officer Caesar Goodson, who is the Baltimore City Police  van driver charged in the death of Freddie Gray. Yesterday it was the prosecutor, today it was a defense attorney who was criticized in open court by Judge Barry Williams. Specifically, defense attorney Amy Askew, who objected to the qualification of Dr. Carroll Allan. She is the deputy medical examiner who performed the autopsy on Freddie Gray. After Judge Williams sustained prosecutor’s objections of Askew’s questioning, the Judge told Askew to “don’t stare at me ask a question.” Eventually, Askew withdrew her objections to Allan as an expert witness.  After 30 minutes of questioning from prosecutors on the autopsy, Allan said based on the autopsy, and discussions with witnesses and police officials, she concluded that the cause of Gray’s death was a neck injury, and the manner of death was a homicide.” Askew will cross examine Dr. Allan after the court's mid-morning break.
