The Maryland court system has re-scheduled the trials of the six officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray, reports ABC News.

These trials had been delayed while the state’s highest court decided whether one of the officers, William Porter, could be compelled to testify against the others, despite the fact that he was to be retried after his first trial resulted in a hung jury.  Last week that court ruled that Porter could be so compelled, allowing the remaining trials to move forward.

The trial dates for each officer, and the charges against them, are as follows (in chronological order):

Officer Edward Nero:  May 10

Officer Nero was primarily involved as one of the arresting officers, and is charged with assault and reckless endangerment.
