Former University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing is taking the stand in the trial where he is accused of shooting and killing a suspect he pulled over for a traffic infraction on July 19, 2015. Watch live in the player above.
Tensing is facing a murder charge for the death of Sam DuBose, but he has claimed he acted in self-defense. This is the second trial that Tensing is facing for DuBose’s death. The first murder trial ended with a hung jury.
In the past, Tensing has argued that he feared for his life when he shot DuBose, claiming that the driver dragged him with his car. He will likely describe that belief in detail when he takes the stand.
