The Fraternal Order of Police lodge in Baltimore City is asking for Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby to remove herself from the Freddie Gray investigation and appoint a special prosecutor. On Friday, Mosby announced she was filing charges against six officers in the death of Freddie Gray.

According to Capital Gazette, the president of the Fraternal Order of Police lodge argues she has a personal conflict due to connections with both Freddie Gray’s attorney Bill Murphy and her husband, City Councilman Nick Mosby.

Attorney and former judge William (Bill) H. Murphy, Jr. represents the Gray family.

Murphy was also a supporter and donated to Mosby’s campaign when she ran for office. According to state filing records, Murphy donated $5,000 dollars to Marilyn Mosby’s campaign.

Maryland Defense Attorney Kush Arora told Breitbart News, “I don’t think it does,” when questioned as to whether or not the campaign donation should require Mosby to appoint a special prosecutor.
 “This prosecutor has the ability to remain impartial. A special prosecutor is not held accountable to the voters. The state’s attorney is elected and therefore is,” Arora said.
