Jury seated in retrial of Ohio officer who killed motorist

Share

Jury selection took over three full days and included some interesting exchanges between attorneys and prospective jurors.

The first prosecution witness was a police supervisor who told jurors that Tensing purposely activated his camera to capture that video.

DuBose's death fueled demonstrations against use of lethal force by white officers against unarmed blacks and other minorities, an issue that renewed debate over racial bias in US police departments. Opening statements were set to begin in court on Thursday.

Tensing has said he feared for his life when Sam DuBose, an unarmed black man, tried to drive away from a 2015 traffic stop.

A former University of Cincinnati police officer faces a second trial on Thursday on charges that he murdered an unarmed black motorist in a 2015 shooting that sparked debate about US law enforcement's use of excessive force. Prosecutors said they would retry Tensing. A jury last November was unable to reach a verdict on either charge.

Mathews agreed that Tensing made a mistake by reaching into the auto.

The runners-up from 2013, Emirates Team New Zealand, are second in the standings after clinching their sixth win on Thursday. Emirates Team New Zealand was almost ideal in winning two races to jump to 8 points in the qualifiers, one more than Oracle.

Prosecutor Stacey DeGraffenreid (de-GRAF'-in-reed) said Thursday during opening statements that Tensing disregarded police training by sticking his arm inside DuBose's vehicle. But he asserted that DuBose used his left arm to pin Tensing's left arm against the car's windowsill and steering wheel.

The specific juror instructions will be given after testimony concludes.

Tensing shot and killed DuBose, an unarmed black man, during a traffic stop in July 2015, but his first trial previous year ended in a hung jury and mistrial, despite video evidence of the incident captured on Tensing's bodycam. If DuBose had cooperated with Tensing during the stop, he would not be dead, Mathews said.
