BALTIMORE (AP) — Attorneys for Caesar Goodson, one of six officers facing criminal charges stemming from the death of Freddie Gray, filed two internal police documents that claim Gray complained of a back injury to police officers more than a month before suffering a critical spinal cord injury in the back of a police van and he had previously tried to hurt himself while in custody.
The incident, first disclosed to defense attorneys during the trial for William Porter that ended in a mistrial earlier this month, is detailed in a police document that was until recently under seal.
Goodson's trial begins Jan. 11. He faces manslaughter, reckless endangerment, misconduct in office and second-degree "depraved-heart" murder charges.
