The third is a real conflict — for Ms. Miller and WBAL-TV. They eventually acknowledged as much by pulling her off the story, and they probably should have done so sooner; Ms. Miller is in a relationship with the deputy state's attorney who led the Freddie Gray investigation. But the notion that Ms. Miller would be a "key witness" to the case is much less clear. The officers' attorneys note that another man was transported in the same van as Gray for part of the ride when he evidently suffered a critical injury to his spinal cord, though the two were separated by a metal partition and could not see one another. One police document indicates that the man, later identified as Donta Allen, said he heard thrashing noises as if Gray were trying to injure himself. Before charges were filed, Ms. Miller broadcast an interview with Mr. Allen in which he denied having told the police that. The officers' attorneys say they need to bring Ms. Miller to the stand to explain how she found Mr. Allen before his identity became public, what was said off camera, and whether the footage was genuine. But the interview was hardly the "exclusive" WBAL claimed it to be. Mr. Allen told the same thing to a reporter from WJZ-TV — and, more crucially, to police investigators themselves. He would seem to be the key witness here, not Ms. Miller.
