The case involving a former University of Cincinnati police officer accused of killing Sam DuBose will return to court early next year.The next hearing date for Ray Tensing will be Feb. 11. A trial date has not yet been set.Tensing was not in court Tuesday when his lawyer, Stu Mathews, briefly met with other attorneys and Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Megan Shanahan.
Tensing, 26, pleaded not guilty after he was indicted earlier this year on charges of murder and involuntary manslaughter in the July 19 shooting death of Sam DuBose.The fatal shooting was "not justified" and violated department policy, according to an independent investigative report released by the University of Cincinnati in September.It said Tensing was "not factually accurate" in his account of events during the off-campus traffic stop.Tensing has said he shot and killed DuBose because he feared for his life. His police-issued body camera captured the deadly interaction.UC fired Tensing shortly after his indictment. A police union is appealing on his behalf.Many here in the Tri-State wonder if an impartial jury can be seated here in the county given how much media attention the cases had.
