The third day of testimony in the murder trial of Baltimore police officer Caesar Goodson Jr. on Monday is expected to feature testimony of fellow officer William Porter.
Porter could be seen waiting in the courthouse hallway ahead of Monday’s proceedings. Both officers are charged in the death of Freddie Gray, and prosecutors attempts’ to compel Porter as a witness with his own charges pending held up proceedings for months.
Prosecutors are looking to call Porter to help establish a timeline of events regarding Gray’s transport, though Porter testified at his own trial that Gray showed no clear signs of injury. Porter also testified, however, that he told Goodson that Gray should be taken to a hospital, which did not occur.
Prosecutors accused Porter, in closing arguments at his trial, of lying about what was said between the two officers when they looked into the back of the van to check on Gray at the van’s fourth stop. The medical examiner who performed Gray’s autopsy said she believes his injuries occurred between the second and fourth stop of the van.
