When the trials of police for the death of Freddie Gray resume next month, a second officer could have to take the stand across from his colleagues.

According to WBAL-TV, Judge Barry Williams ruled that Officer Garrett Miller could be compelled to testify against Officer Edward Nero and Lt. Brian Rice. The ruling comes ahead of Nero’s trial, which is scheduled to begin with jury selection on May 10.¬†Nero, Rice and Miller were the officers on bike patrol who initially “made eye contact” with Gray, leading to a chase and his eventual arrest.

The ruling comes after Maryland’s highest court decided that Officer William Porter, who is awaiting a retrial after his mistrial late last year, could be compelled to testify against other officers.
