A Maryland prosecutor says all six of the Baltimore officers involved in the arrest of Freddie Gray are being charged in connection with his death. The charges include second-degree murder, manslaughter and assault. The prosecutor announced today that Gray's death in police custody was a homicide. She also said Gray's arrest was illegal — and that the switchblade that was supposedly found clipped to his pants was in fact a knife that was legal.
