First Freddie Gray Verdict Ends with Officer Acquittal A judge in Baltimore today found Officer Edward Nero not guilty of all charges in the death of Freddy Gray — an incident that sparked riots and widespread anger around the country. Trials for four other officers are still pending. Billy Murphy, the attorney for Gray's family, said the family would respect the verdict. "Only those people who actually sat through this trial and heard all of the evidence have a right to have an opinion about whether his decision was fair, and whether or not it was warranted under the circumstances." Rachel Weiner is in Baltimore, covering the case for the Washington Post .
