Officer William G. Porter trial recap: Day 11

Prosecutors told jurors Monday that Officer William G. Porter's failure to helpFreddie Gray turned a police van into a "casket on wheels," while Porter's defense attorneys said the state's case was based on theories and asks jurors to make too many assumptions.

- A jury of seven women and five men began deliberating after two weeks of testimony in a case in which prosecutors say Porter's failure to act rose to criminal neglect.

- In closing arguments, Chief Deputy State's Attorney Michael Schatzow accused Porter of lying in his account and suggested a "coverup."
