A judge will consider Wednesday afternoon whether Baltimore Police Officer William Porter should be forced to testify against four other officers charged with the death of Freddie Gray.

Prosecutors want Porter, whose manslaughter trial ended in a mistrial last month, to testify against Sgt. Alicia White, Officer Edward Nero, Officer Garrett Miller and Lt. Brian Rice.

The second-degree murder trial of Officer Caesar Goodson, who was driving the van in which Gray was fatally injured last April, is on hold as the Maryland Court of Special Appeals considers whether Porter should be compelled to testify in that trial as well.

Porter’s second trial is scheduled for June.
