BALTIMORE – The latest on the trial of a police officer accused in the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who suffered a spinal injury in the back of a transport van (all times local):
Jury selection has entered its second day in the trial of William Porter, one of six Baltimore police officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray.
Baltimore Circuit Court Judge Barry Williams is bringing in a second set of about 75 prospective jurors Tuesday after questioning a group of similar size Monday. Court spokeswoman Terri Charles says some members from both groups will be brought back Wednesday.
Porter is charged with manslaughter, assault, misconduct in office and reckless endangerment.
Gray was a 25-year-old black man who died of a critical spinal injury he suffered on April 12 in the back of a police van.
Prosecutors say Porter failed to render aid to Gray, who repeatedly asked for medical attention.
His death prompted widespread protests and rioting.
