CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Sam DuBose's children suffered the greatest loss from his death and should receive the most and an equal share of a nearly $5 million settlement, a Hamilton County judge ruled Monday.

Raegan Brooks, one of DuBose's daughters, was named the family estate administrator in November.

Several family members asked for a share of the settlement.

“How much money is the life of a man worth to his children? His parents? His siblings? Answering this question at all diminishes the value of life. However, as a society we choose to employ a system of legal damages to compensate what is ultimately unquantifiable,” Hamilton County Probate Judge Ralph Winkler said.

Judge Winkler said Monday DuBose mother and children suffered more of a loss than his father.

DuBose's 13 children will each receive $217,816. His mother will get $90,001, and his father will receive $25,001.

Six siblings will each collect $32,000.

“The court’s hope is that, over time, the family members can heal both individually and collectively,” Judge Winkler said.

University of Cincinnati Police Officer Ray Tensing shot and killed Sam DuBose, 43, in July during a traffic stop in Clifton.

A grand jury indicted Tensing for murder and voluntary manslaughter after body cam video was released of the traffic stop.

In January, UC and the family of DuBose reached a settlement in the sum of $5.3 million.

UC agreed to pay $4.8 to the DuBose family and will provide an undergraduate education free of tuition and fees for Sam's 12 kids, which is estimated to be valued at about $500,000.

Tensing, who has pleaded not guilty, is scheduled to face a jury trial Oct. 24.
