Lead police detective testifies in Freddie Gray trial

BALTIMORE (AP) — The lead detective who investigated Freddie Gray’s injuries after his neck was broken in the back of a police van is expected to finish testifying in the first trial of one of the officers charged in Gray’s death.

Detective Syreeta Teel initially took the stand Thursday afternoon, and should resume her testimony Friday morning.

Teel has testified she spoke with Officer William Porter at the Western District station house, where Gray was discovered unresponsive and rushed to a hospital. She told jurors she saw Gray in the hospital before returning to West Baltimore to canvas the neighborhood for information.

Teel was the last of eight witnesses the state called Thursday, the second day of testimony.
