CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Ray Tensing's lawyer is asking the judge to clear all charges against the former University of Cincinnati Police officer.
The motion to acquit comes just days after a judge declared a mistrial in Tensing's second murder trial. Jurors were deadlocked in deciding the charges of murder and voluntary manslaughter.

Jurors voted 8 to 4 not guilty of murder and 7 to 5 not guilty of manslaughter, sources tell FOX19 NOW.
Mathews asks the court to "give deference to the vote of the jury" by acquitting Tensing of all charges.
The motion reads in-part:
Ghiz has not responded to the motion.
