BALTIMORE (AP)- Two of the officers who were charged in the death of a black man fatally injured in a police transport van have testified at the trial of a fellow officer.
    
The bench trial of Lt. Brian Rice, the highest-ranking officer charged in the 2015 death of Freddie Gray, resumed Monday with testimony from Officer Edward Nero, who was acquitted, and William Porter, whose trial ended in a mistrial. Rice is facing manslaughter and other charges.
    
After prosecutors asked Nero about his defamation lawsuit against prosecutors and a joint defense agreement he entered with other defendants, Judge Barry Williams ruled that Nero was hostile to the prosecution, allowing them to ask him leading questions.
    
Gray died a week after suffering a spinal injury in the van, touching off protests and rioting.
