A court spokeswoman says lawyers have more work to do before setting a date for a possible retrial of Baltimore Police Officer William Porter in the death of Freddie Gray.

Lawyers for both sides met privately with Baltimore Circuit Judge Barry Williams for about 30 minutes Thursday, a day after a hung jury prompted Williams to declare a mistrial on all four charges, including manslaughter.

Maryland judiciary spokeswoman Terri Charles says lawyers will hold at least one more scheduling conference with Williams in coming days. She says that to her knowledge, prosecutors haven't yet decided whether to retry Porter.

Charles says scheduling conferences are typically held behind closed doors. She says her office will announce any new trial dates in any of the six officers' cases.
