Lawyers for the government and officers accused in Freddie Gray’s death will be back in court on Tuesday.
A hearing is scheduled to determine when the trial of the six officers will start. The attorneys for the six officers who are accused in the case asked for the start of the trial to be postponed due to new evidence. A judge in the case already ruled that the officers would be tried separately. The first trial was initially scheduled to start Oct. 13, but that could change depending on Tuesday’s outcome.
The info about the new evidence isn’t known, but a couple of days before the hearing, the Baltimore Sun reported that one of the officers, William Porter, warned at least one of the others that Gray needed medical care. That came after Gray said he needed to go to the hospital. However, the Sun reported that information in the statements given by the officers conflicted.
