Gray, who was 25, suffered a devastating spinal injury and died in April 2015, about a week after he was arrested and placed into a prisoner van.

Though Gray’s death became a symbol of the black community’s distrust of police and triggered days of violent protests, the state has failed to secure a single conviction following three high-profile trials.
