DuBose's medical records handed over to defense attorney

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Sam DuBose's medical records were turned over to Ray Tensing's attorney during a hearing Thursday to be used as part of his defense.

Tensing is charged with murder in the shooting death of DuBose during an off-campus traffic stop last summer.

Stu Mathews, who represents the former University of Cincinnati police officer, requested the medical records, saying it could prove that DuBose tried to drive off during the traffic stop, but no other details were given.

Mathews said in April he received information that DuBose was suffering from a medical condition that could be significant to the case. He declined to identify the medical condition.

Tensing said DuBose tried to pull away and was dragging him, so he shot him in the head.

Police body camera video footage shows Tensing shot DuBose in the head without provocation, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said in July of last year.

Tensing's next hearing is set for June 23.  He's scheduled to go on trial in October.
