For the second time the former University of Cincinnati police Officer  Ray Tensing murder retrial has ended in another hung jury, meaning jurors were unable to reach a unanimous verdict in the case.

Tensing was on trail for murder and voluntary manslaughter of Sam Dubose in a traffic stop on July, 15 2015.  The jury deliberated for five days before the judge declared this second mistrial.  Tensing’s first trial ended in a hung jury, after the jurors deadlocked for 16 hours in November.

The former cop pulled DuBose over for a missing front license plate on July 19, 2015, reports NPR. The encounter ended with the ex-cop firing his weapon into the Black motorist’s car. Tensing was indicted for murder less than two weeks following the fatal shooting, and DuBose’s family filed a wrongful death lawsuit.
