Jury selection nearing end for Ohio cop's murder retrial

Nine white jurors and three black jurors were seated Wednesday in Cincinnati for the murder retrial of a fired white police officer in the 2015 death of a black unarmed motorist, averting the possibility it would need to be moved.

One excluded juror told prosecutor Seth Tieger on Monday that Tensing "deserved a medal" for shooting and killing unarmed black man Samuel DuBose, and also called DuBose a drug dealer.

Former University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing is seen in an undated booking photo from the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office in Ohio.

A jury of 12 people - seven white females, two white males, two black females and one black male - will hear the case at the Hamilton County Courthouse.

Opening statements are expected to begin at 9:30 a.m. Thursday in the Ray Tensing murder retrial.

Despite attempts to make him swing in that direction, Obama did not mention President Trump in his remarks. The former president reminded us all we have been here before, in much graver times, and pulled through.

They will serve if the other jurors can not complete the trial.

Tensing faces charges of murder and voluntary manslaughter.

A gag order has been placed on all parties by Common Pleas Court Judge Leslie Ghiz.

Defense attorney Stew Mathews spoke at length to the jury before the courtroom broke for lunch on Tuesday, and reminded prospective jurors that the bodycam footage is not the only piece of evidence.

Tensing was a University of Cincinnati officer when he says he feared for his life as DuBose tried to drive away from a traffic stop near campus.
