BALTIMORE (AP) — Attorneys for six Baltimore officers charged in Freddie Gray's death say prosecutors had asked police to target the intersection where the officers first encountered Gray.

That's according to a court filing Tuesday. The attorneys again asked a judge to remove State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby from the case, saying she has conflicts of interest. They argue the request from prosecutors, emailed a month before Gray died in police custody, is an indication Mosby is "an integral part of the story ... both as an advocate and a witness."

Gray was arrested April 12 on charges he had an illegal knife after he ran from police at North Avenue and Mount Street in West Baltimore. He was detained, handcuffed and placed in a van. He was unresponsive 45 minutes later.
