Ohio court officials lay out plans for ex-cop's murder case

CINCINNATI (AP) " Court officials in Ohio have announced plans for public access and scheduling in the murder trial of a white former police officer charged with killing an unarmed black man during a traffic stop.

Hamilton County court officials say spectators for 26-year-old Ray Tensing's trial will be seated on a first-come basis, but courtroom space is very limited. Long lines are expected for security screening.

Officials say news media coverage will be available on Livestream beginning Oct. 31 when prospective jurors are questioned in court. Pretrial matters and jury pool orientation are planned beginning Oct. 25.

The fired University of Cincinnati officer has pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and voluntary manslaughter in the 2015 shooting of 43-year-old Sam DuBose.
