CINCINNATI – A judge has given both sides more time for expert witness reports and other potential evidence they're to exchange before she sets a trial date for a University of Cincinnati police officer charged with murder.
Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Megan Shanahan on Tuesday scheduled another pretrial hearing Feb. 11 in the case of Ray Tensing. Tensing is charged with murder and voluntary manslaughter in the July 19 shooting of Samuel DuBose, a black motorist he pulled over for a missing front license plate.
Tensing, who is white, has pleaded not guilty and was released under $1 million bond. He wasn't in court Tuesday; DuBose's mother was among spectators.
His attorney has said Tensing feared being dragged under the car as DuBose tried to drive away.
The university fired Tensing.
