Judge Formally Dismisses Case Against Ray Tensing

Hamilton County Sheriff's Office

The sister of an unarmed black motorist fatally shot by a white University of Cincinnati police officer says Monday's formal dismissal of murder and voluntary manslaughter charges is disappointing because it means those charges can't be brought again.  A judge dismissed the charges against Tensing in the 2105 slaying of Samuel DuBose. The victim's sister, Terina Allen, says the family wants federal authorities reviewing the shooting by to prosecute Tensing for civil rights violations. A small group of Tensing supporters marched across a Cincinnati bridge on Monday in support of the former officer.  They were closely followed by a group of counter demonstrators.
