CINCINNATI (AP) – A judge now presiding over the second trial of a white former University of Cincinnati police officer charged with killing a black motorist during a traffic stop plans to discuss the upcoming trial.
Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Leslie Ghiz has scheduled a Monday morning hearing on Ray Tensing’s retrial. The prosecution and defense are expected to work with her on a timetable.
Ghiz was appointed after the first trial judge recused herself. She had declared a mistrial Nov. 12 because jurors couldn’t agree on a verdict in the 2015 shooting death of Samuel DuBose.
Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters has said he wants to move the trial to another county, away from intense local attention.
