Former University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing's second trial on murder and voluntary manslaughter charges for the death of Sam DuBose has ended the same way as his first, in a hung jury. Hamilton County Judge Leslie Ghiz declared a mistrial Friday afternoon.

A judge has declared a mistrial in the murder and manslaughter case against former University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing over his fatal shooting of black motorist Sam DuBose.

This is the second time the case has ended in a mistrial — the jury was deadlocked in the first trial, which ended last November.

Attorney General Mike DeWine’s office says his office is doing something it doesn’t normally do. It is asking the public for specific information in connection to the murders of eight Piketon residents a year ago.

The jury in the retrial of Ray Tensing appears to be headed toward another deadlock. After around 27 hours of deliberating the jury told Hamilton County Judge Leslie Ghiz they cannot come to a consensus and asked how they should proceed.

City of Cincinnati

Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley has used his veto power to fix what a council ordinance he believes would have resulted in a structurally unbalanced city budget.

On Wednesday, council voted 5-4 to reject a plan from City Manager Harry Black to boot cars with three or more unpaid parking tickets, a move that would have generated $600,000 for the city.

In Black's proposal, that money would be replaced with a $600,000 withdrawal from the urban development fund.
