BALTIMORE (AP) - A Baltimore judge will hear the final arguments from prosecutors and defense attorneys before the first of six trials in the Freddie Gray case begins next week.

The trial for Officer William Porter is scheduled to begin Monday. He is one of six Baltimore police officers charged in the death of Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died a week after suffering a spinal injury in a police van. Porter is charged with manslaughter, assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office.

At Tuesday’s pretrial hearing, Judge Barry Williams will likely address the number of character witnesses Porter can call to the stand and deal with a motion filed by Porter’s attorneys to sequester the jury.
