CINCINNATI – Was Ray Tensing being dragged by Sam DuBose’s car?

When did DuBose's car move and how far did it go?

Was Tensing justified in shooting DuBose during that 2015 traffic stop?

Those are the key questions jurors are trying to answer as they deliberate in the retrial of the former University of Cincinnati police officer. 

The jury is looking for answers in Tensing’s body-camera video along with testimony from forensic video analysts, use-of-force experts and Tensing himself.

WCPO’s Tom McKee, who has covered every day of the two Tensing trials, examines the issues in the videos below:
