New Trial Date Set in Freddie Gray Case

A Baltimore judge has scheduled a new trial date after declaring a mistrial for one of six officers charged in connection with the death of Freddie Gray. 

Officer William Porter’s first trial ended in a hung jury last week.  

The new trial is scheduled for June 13.  

The other five officers will be tried before that, beginning next month. 

Porter is charged with manslaughter, assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office. 

Prosecutors say he checked on Gray several times, but ignored his cries for help in the back of a police van. 

Gray died of a severe spinal cord injury while in police custody in April.
