Six months ago, a mistrial was declared in the trial of Officer William Porter, the first of six officers indicted in the death of Freddie Gray.  There is no chance of a mistrial when Officer Edward Nero faces charges beginning tomorrow.  He’s opted to put his fate in the hands of Judge Barry Williams, instead of a jury.  Our legal experts -- private attorney Edward Smith and University of Baltimore law professor David Jaros -- preview the strategies that both sides will employ in the Nero case. 

Then, Maryland Morning co-host Nathan Sterner talks with three young entrepreneurs who came out on top in MICA's first-ever UP/Start Venture Competition.  And, opera diva Sarah Joy Miller.  A few years ago, she made a splash as the star of an opera about Anna Nicole Smith.  This weekend, she sings the role of Juliet.  How art students find the next big thing, and how a soprano finds her Romeo.
