Freddie Gray Trial: Second Day of Jury Selection Begins

Baltimore Police Department

Jury selection has entered its second day in the trial of William Porter, one of six Baltimore police officers charged in the death of a 25-year-old Black man who died in April while in police custody.

Baltimore Circuit Court Judge Barry Williams will bring a second set of about 75 prospective jurors in Tuesday after questioning a group of similar size the day before.

Some members from both groups will be brought back Wednesday, according to Court spokeswoman Terri Charles.

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