New trial for Baltimore officer in Freddie Gray death set for June
A Baltimore police officer will face retrial on charges of manslaughter related to the death of Freddie Gray starting on June 13, a Maryland judge ruled on Monday, after the officer’s first trial ended in a deadlocked jury.
Officer William Porter was the first of six officers to be tried in connection with Gray’s death, which resulted from injuries sustained while in police custody. The trial of Officer Caesar Goodson, who faces the most serious charge of second-degree depraved heart murder, remains on track to begin Jan. 6, Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Barry Williams ruled.
