University Of Cincinnati Officer Pleads Not Guilty To Murder Charge

A University of Cincinnati officer, who was charged in the murder of an unarmed black man during a routine traffic stop, has pleaded not guilty.

Officer Ray Tensing was escorted into a Hamilton County courthouse on Thursday handcuffed and in a prison uniform.

The judge presiding over the case said because Tensing is facing a potential life-in-prison sentence, she was setting his bail at $1 million.
