Jury to see body camera video of police shooting in retrial

  Jury to see body camera video of police shooting in retrial Jurors likely will see body camera video from the scene of a 2015 police shooting during this week's testimony in the murder retrial of a white former University of Cincinnati police officer. Prosecutors say the video from Ray Tensing's body camera shows there was no reason to use deadly force during the traffic stop. Tensing has said he thought Sam DuBose, who was black, was trying to kill him with his car and that he fired a shot to stop the threat to his life.Jurors watched the video in Tensing's first trial, which ended in a hung jury last November.

Ray Tensing's first jury deadlocked in November on charges of murder and voluntary manslaughter in the 2015 shooting of an unarmed black motorist.

Tensing again took the stand in his own defense, tearing up Friday as he insisted he wanted to "stop the threat" when he shot Sam DuBose. Prosecutors say evidence including Tensing's body camera footage showed no reason to use deadly force.

Hamilton County Judge Leslie Ghiz (giz) last week rejected prosecutors' request to add a lesser charge of reckless homicide. They could ask again Monday.
