Ray Tensing retrial: Mistrial declared for 2nd time after jury deadlocks

Recommended Posts

(CNN)An Ohio judge declared a mistrial Friday in the case against former University of Cincinnati police Officer Ray Tensing, who fatally shot Samuel DuBose during a traffic stop in July 2015.

DuBose's killing was one in a series of high-profile, officer-involved shootings that sparked nationwide protests over the use of force by police. Tensing, who is white, was fired from his job and arrested after the shooting.

Shortly after 2 p.m. Friday, Judge Leslie Ghiz declared a second mistrial in the murder case after receiving a note from the jury.

"We are almost evenly split regarding our votes towards a final verdict," the note read.
