The judge hearing the case of Baltimore police officer William Porter, who is charged with manslaughter, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office in the death of Freddie Gray, has sent back the jury after they said they were deadlocked on the charges.

Six police officers have been charged by State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby in connection with the death of Freddie Gray’s death, which allegedly occurred in police custody after he suffered a spinal injury during a “rough ride” in the back of a police van. His death sparked days of rioting in Baltimore this April, causing millions of dollars in damage due to looting, arson and vandalism.

A judge denied a request for a change of venue, and also determined there would be six separate trials.

According to the Associated Press, the jury wrestled with the legal meanings of terms like “evil motive” and “bad faith” and their relationship to the misconduct in office charge.

As Twitchy reported yesterday, both the Baltimore Police Commissioner and the CEO of the Baltimore School District issued letters urging calm whatever the jury’s verdict.
