Freddie Gray case | State vs Officer Caesar Goodson | Day 4

Caesar Goodson Trial 13The trial of Officer Caesar Goodson Jr., the van driver accused of second-degree murder in the death of Freddie Gray, was expected to resume Tuesday morning with continued testimony from a member of the police department’s Force Investigation Team that investigated the incident.

Det. Michael Boyd took the stand Monday afternoon, and walked prosecutors through a series of city surveillance videos that tracked the van through its 45-minute trip through the city with Gray in the back. One of those videos showed the van rolling through a stop sign, something Chief Deputy State’s Attorney Michael Schatzow has referenced in alleging that Goodson gave Gray what’s known as a “rough ride,” or an intentionally turbulent transport.

Still, prosecutors through Monday still had not outlined their theory of the alleged rough ride in detail.

Boyd is the state’s 14th witness so far. Tuesday will be the fourth day of testimony. It was unclear Tuesday morning what other witnesses the state may call to the stand. Prosecutors have already called several key witnesses, including Dr. Carol Allan, the assistant medical examiner who performed Gray’s autopsy, and Officer William Porter, a co-defendant in the broader Gray case who was alone with Gray and Goodson at a key stop of the van.

Allan stood by her conclusion that Gray’s death was a homicide. Porter testified that he did not believe Gray was seriously injured during his interactions with the 25-year-old, but also acknowledged that he could have seat belted Gray in the van.

Gray died April 19, 2015, one week after his arrest. His death sparked widespread protests against police brutality, and his funeral was followed by rioting, looting and arson. All six Baltimore officers charged in his arrest and death have pleaded not guilty.
