Freddie Gray trial will stay in Baltimore

September 10th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

A judge has ruled the trials of six Baltimore police officers charged in connection with the death of Freddie Gray will be kept in Baltimore. Judge Barry Williams ruled Thursday, saying the officers could get fair trials in Baltimore despite days of protests, rioting and a weeklong city-wide curfew after Gray's death. Gray died in April after he was critically injured in police custody.  Protesters cheered outside the courthouse. "The trial stays here," they said repeatedly.  Attorneys for the officers had argued that a million-dollar settlement the city reached with the Gray family sways jurors, along with other pre-trial publicity.
