The six officers indicted in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray face a variety of charges, from misconduct in office to second-degree murder. Yesterday, all six officers entered not-guilty pleas and requested jury trials.

Circuit Court Judge Barry Williams, who the Sun describes as having a “no-nonsense reputation” and a history as a civil rights litigator, will preside over the trial. The trial date has been set for October 13.

By entering their not-guilty pleas in writing, the Sun notes that the six officers can avoid appearing in court for their arraignment next week.
