Judge Meeting With Attorneys In Murder Retrial Of Former U.C. Officer
The judge who will preside over the murder retrial of a white former University of Cincinnati police officer who fatally shot a black driver during a minor traffic stop plans to get an update from attorneys on pretrial progress in the case.
Hamilton County Judge Leslie Ghiz set a Monday meeting with both sides in the Ray Tensing case, scheduled for trial May 25. The first trial ended with a hung jury.
Ghiz has said her goal is to keep the second trial in Hamilton County, and she imposed a gag order on trial participants.
Tensing has testified he feared for his life as Sam DuBose tried to drive away from a July 2015 traffic stop that started over a missing front license plate.
