Baltimore police expect protests tomorrow as court hearings begin in the case of six police officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray, the African-American man who in April suffered a severe spinal injury in policy custody.

Lawyers for the police want the prosecutor to be removed from the case and the trial to be moved out of Baltimore, because of rioting after Gray's death.

Kenneth Burns, a reporter at the Baltimore public radio station WYPR, joins Here & Now's Lisa Mullins with a preview of the hearings.
