A deadlocked Maryland jury will try again on Wednesday to reach a decision in the trial of a Baltimore police officer charged in the April death of black detainee Freddie Gray.

Officer William Porter, 26, is on trial for involuntary manslaughter and other charges in Baltimore City Circuit Court. The jury said on Tuesday that it was unable to reach a decision after almost 10 hours of deliberations in the high-profile case.

Judge Barry Williams ordered the jury of seven women and five men to keep deliberating. He did not say how the jury was stymied.

Porter is the first of six officers to be tried in Gray’s death from a broken neck sustained in the back of a police van.
