BALTIMORE — State's Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby says six officers in the police-custody death of Freddie Gray have been charged.

One officer faces a second-degree murder charge while the other officers face manslaughter or assault charges, among others.

Mosby says the officers failed to get Gray medical help even though he requested it repeatedly after he was arrested April 12. She called his arrest illegal.

At some point while he was in custody, he suffered a mysterious spinal injury and died a week later.

Updates on this breaking news story will be posted as they become available.
