The police officer accused of giving Freddie Gray the "rough ride" that caused him to be mortally injured has been found not guilty of murder.

Baltimore police officer Caesar Goodson, 46, was acquitted on all six charges, including counts related to second-degree "depraved heart" murder, manslaughter, assault, and others.

Judge Barry Williams issued the ruling, lambasting the prosecution for offering theories and not evidence. "The court cannot simply let things speak for themselves," Judge Williams said.

This latest acquittal marks the third setback for the prosecution in their attempt to charge officers related to the death of Freddie Gray.

In December, the trial of Officer William Porter ended in a hung jury and last month Officer Edward Nero was acquitted in his trial.
