New trial for Baltimore officer in Freddie Gray death set for June
By Donna Owens BALTIMORE (Reuters) - A Baltimore police officer will face retrial on a manslaughter charge over the death of black detainee Freddie Gray starting on June 13, a Maryland judge ruled on Monday, after the officer's first trial ended in a deadlocked jury. Judge Barry Williams set the trial date after meeting prosecutors and defense lawyers, the Maryland state courts office said in a statement. Gray's death in April caused protests and rioting in the majority black city of 620,000 people and intensified a U.S. debate on police treatment of minorities.
