BALTIMORE (AP) — Protesters are expected to gather today outside a courthouse in Baltimore for the first hearing for six city police officers accused in the death of Freddie Gray, the black man who suffered critical spine injuries while in police custody. One issue prosecutors and defense attorneys will be raising is whether State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby should remove herself from the case. Gray's death led to protests in Baltimore, and a riot that prompted the National Guard to be called in.
