The first trial for six Baltimore police officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray is scheduled to start Monday with jury selection.
Officer William Porter is the first of the "Baltimore Six" to head to trial. He is charged with involuntary manslaughter and second-degree assault. The charges carry a sentence of up to 20 years in prison and stem from the death of Freddie Gray following his April 12 arrest.
Porter wasn't there during Gray's arrest, but checked on him once he met up with the driver of the police van transporting Gray.
Two of the four videos of Freddie Gray's arrest have been ruled admissible in Porter's trial. Jury selection will get underway with a pool of 75-80 potential jurors. All jurors will remain anonymous.
