(CNN) — William Porter, one of six Baltimore police officers charged in connection with the death of Freddie Gray, will face a June 13 retrial, said court spokeswoman Allison Akers.

The new date is scheduled to be approved Tuesday morning in a hearing in Judge Barry Williams’ courtroom. Porter’s trial would now follow those of his five fellow officers.

Last week, a jury deadlocked in Porter’s trial, resulting in Williams declaring a mistrial.

Porter was the first officer to go on trial in the closely watched case involving Gray, a 25-year-old black detainee who died in April after being shackled and placed without a seat belt in a police van.
