Arresting officer in Freddie Gray case chooses bench trial

Posted By Paula Collis, Wednesday, May 11, 2016

A police officer charged in the Freddie Gray case chose Tuesday to stand trial before a judge rather than a jury, eliminating a potential wild card in the divisive and emotionally charged case.

Officer Edward Nero was one of three officers who arrested Gray when he made eye contact with one of them and took off running in a high-crime area in April 2015.
