BALTIMORE (Reuters) - A Maryland judge declared a hung jury on Wednesday in the trial of Baltimore police officer William Porter, who was charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of detainee Freddie Gray.
Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Barry Williams issued the ruling after the jury of seven women and five men was unable to each a verdict after about 16 hours of deliberations. Porter also was charged with second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office over Gray's death in April from a broken neck suffered in a police van.
