BALTIMORE (AP) - A Baltimore judge will hear motions from the defense in the upcoming trial for an officer facing the most serious charge stemming from the death of a young black man from injuries he received in a police van.

Circuit Judge Barry Williams will hold a motions hearing Monday in the trial for Officer Caesar Goodson, who faces second-degree murder, manslaughter, assault, misconduct in office and reckless endangerment charges stemming from Freddie Gray’s death.

The 25-year-old Gray died last year, a week after his neck was broken in the van Goodson was driving. Prosecutors say he failed in his duty by not buckling Gray into a seat belt.

Goodson is asking Williams to suppress statements made by another officer to an investigator, as well as portions of Gray’s autopsy report.
