Trial delayed for officer in Freddie Gray case

BALTIMORE (AP) - A Maryland appeals court has delayed the trial of the police van driver charged in the death of Freddie Gray.
    
Jury selection had been set to start Monday in Baltimore in the trial of Caesar Goodson. He's the second of six officers scheduled for trial. The manslaughter trial of Officer William Porter ended in December with a hung jury.
    
Goodson's case has been complicated after a judge ruled last week that Porter must testify against Goodson, despite Porter's claim that he has a right not to incriminate himself. A state appeals court has temporarily blocked that ruling while its judges consider whether to uphold that decision.
    
Gray died in April from a broken neck he suffered during a van ride.
