When Ray Tensing shot and killed Sam DuBose nearly two years ago, it put Cincinnati in the national spotlight. His mistrial last November also drew attention from across the country. 

Now, Tensing's case will once again go before a jury. 

We know this retrial has massive implications and interest in our community. That’s why WCPO is devoting significant resources to covering the proceedings.

We will have the most experienced team covering the retrial on nearly every platform you want information.

Our two lead reporters — Tom McKee and Greg Noble — have a combined 79 years of journalism experience in the Tri-State.

McKee covered dozens of major trials from the Shayna Hubers trial to the Bill Erpenbeck trial. Noble led coverage of the Pete Rose court battles and the Bengals rape case.

In addition to those two experienced reporters, we will have a full team live from the Hamilton County Courthouse. Starting Tuesday, May 30, a 9 On Your Side anchor will be at the courthouse with daily live updates.

Chris Riva, Julie O'Neill, Tanya O'Rourke, Kristyn Hartman, Timyka Artist, Craig Cheatham and Ally Kraemer will all be part of the coverage team. We also have a team of legal experts who will be working with us to provide analysis.

Social media producer Libby Cunningham will be at the courthouse providing you with live updates. Follow @WCPOLibby or @WCPO for minute-by-minute updates of what is going on. All of those live Twitter and other social media updates will be collected for easy review on
