An Ohio judge declared a mistrial for the second time in the case against Ray Tensing, a former University of Cincinnati police officer charged with the 2015 shooting of an unarmed black driver during a traffic stop.
After five days of deliberations, the jury said Friday afternoon it was deadlocked and Hamilton County Judge Leslie Ghiz declared a mistrial in the murder and voluntary manslaughter trial.
The case spurred from a deadly encounter, caught on police cameras, between Tensing and 43-year-old motorist Samuel DuBose.
This is the second time Tensing has been brought before a jury on criminal charges. The first round also ended in a mistrial last year with a jury unable to come to a unanimous verdict after deliberating for more than 20 hours.
