BALTIMORE (AP)- A judge will begin calling potential jurors into a conference room one by one during the second day of jury selection in the trial of Officer William Porter.
    
He is one of six police officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died of a spinal injury he suffered in custody.
    
On Tuesday, Baltimore Circuit Judge Barry Williams questioned a pool of about 75 prospective jurors, and 46 indicated that they have been a victim of or suspect in a crime, been incarcerated or have criminal charges pending against them. Two potential jurors said they personally knew Gray, while 14 people indicated that they have family members who work in law enforcement.
    
On Monday, Williams individually interviewed more than 60 potential jurors. Williams told the prospective jurors in the pool of 75 to return to court on Wednesday unless notified in the interim that they have been dismissed.
