The most underreported story of the past few weeks.
(BALTIMORE) — Jurors in the manslaughter trial of a Baltimore police officer charged in the death of Freddie Gray say they’re deadlocked, but the judge overseeing the case has told them to keep deliberating.
He is the first of six officers to stand trial on charges stemming from Gray’s death in April.
Porter is charged with manslaughter, assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct. Prosecutors say he should have buckled Gray in and called a medic after the 25-year-old prisoner asked for help.
Porter’s lawyers say he’s not to blame for Gray’s death.
