Jury Seated in Retrial of Ohio Officer Who Killed Motorist

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.

Hamilton County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Stacey DeGraffenreid, in brief opening remarks, said on Thursday that Tensing ignored his training when he reached into the auto and was never in any danger.

The first prosecution witness was a police supervisor who told jurors that Tensing purposely activated his camera to capture that video. Ray Tensing, center, speaks to his defense attorney Stewart Mathews, right, before opening statements in Tensing's retrial Thursday, June 8, 2017, at the Hamilton County Courthouse in Cincinnati.


The jury is set in the retrial of former University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing in the shooting death of Sam DuBose during a 2015 traffic stop.

There were six white men, four white women and two black women on that jury.

Tensing, who is white, shot DuBose, an unarmed black man, during a traffic stop on July 19, 2015. The lead prosecutor in the first trial said the retrial should be moved after a November hung jury.


A gag order has been placed on all parties by Common Pleas Court Judge Leslie Ghiz.

Tensing shot and killed DuBose, an unarmed black man, during a traffic stop in July 2015, but his first trial previous year ended in a hung jury and mistrial, despite video evidence of the incident captured on Tensing's bodycam.
