Cincinnati Jurors Set To Visit Scene Of Police Shooting As Trial Begins
Jurors in the murder trial of a white University of Cincinnati police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black man during a traffic stop will visit the street near campus where the shooting took place.
After they see the scene on Tuesday, opening statements will begin in the murder trial of 26-year-old Ray Tensing. He's charged in the 2015 death of 43-year-old Sam DuBose.
A jury of two black women, four white women and six white men was seated on Monday. Four white women were added as alternate jurors after a day of questioning by attorneys who urged jury candidates to put aside race, news stories and police perceptions for the case of the now-fired officer.
The judge told jurors to avoid news media coverage of the trial and to stay off social media and the internet.
