Police shooting in traffic stop "clearly" murder

Jury selection nearing end for Ohio cop's murder retrial

Former University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing is seen in an undated booking photo from the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office in Ohio.

"He forgot and didn't use his training", she said. Opening statements are set to begin Thursday morning.

Defense attorney Stewart Mathews says that Tensing's arm was stuck inside the auto and that he feared for his life as DuBose tried to drive away.

Jurors in the retrial of former University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing for the shooting death of Samuel DuBose saw the body camera video of the shooting during the first day of proceedings. Prosecutors said they would retry Tensing. A mistrial was declared last November in the first trial after jurors could not agree. Officers are taught not to reach inside a vehicle to try to take a motorist's keys, she said.




Tensing, who is white, shot DuBose, an unarmed black man, during a traffic stop on July 19, 2015.

Mathews agreed that Tensing made a mistake by reaching into the vehicle.

Hamilton County Judge Leslie Ghiz (giz) said the jurors will be taken Wednesday to scene where Ray Tensing shot Sam DuBose in 2015. Usually, jurors in such cases are instructed to consider the lesser charge only if they can not reach a decision on the murder charge.
