    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — A judge has asked the jury to return to chambers to deliberate, ABC News reported on Tuesday.

    On Monday, Baltimore jurors listened to the arguments during the trial of police officer Willian Porter, who faces additional charges of assault, misconduct and reckless endangerment of a civilian.

    In April, 25-year-old African-American Freddie Gray died from spinal cord injuries that he sustained while in police custody. The six officers who arrested him are accused of ignoring Gray’s requests for medical help. They face charges on counts of assault, manslaughter, false imprisonment and misconduct in office.

    In May, a grand jury indicted the six officers, leading the US Attorney General Loretta Lynch to announce a Justice Department investigation into the Baltimore Police Department practices.
