The retrial in the Ray Tensing-Samuel Dubose case ends in a mistrial.
The hung jury deliberated for nearly 31 hours over five days, but could not come to a unanimous decision. This comes after a mistrial was also declared when the case was initially brought to court last year.
Tensing, a former University of Cincinnati police officer, fatally shot DuBose in July of 2015 after pulling him over for a missing front license plate.
The second mistrial was declared by Judge Leslie Ghiz after she received a note from the jury.
“We’re almost evenly split regarding our vote for a final verdict. We have given this extensive deliberation with opportunities for both sides to express their position. We cannot proceed to come to a unanimous decision.”
The DuBose family said they will be demanding a retrial in a statement made through an attorney, according to WCPO.
