LIVE: Tensing jury selection continues Friday after setbacks

Jury selection for the retrial of ex-police officer Ray Tensing continues Friday after a three-day pause in trial proceedings pending a decision on media accessibility.The pool of potential jurors will be whittled down to 12 and four alternates to hear the case against Tensing, a former University of Cincinnati police officer being retried for murder. About 1,000 prospective jurors were initially summoned for this week’s retrial. That number was cut down to 243 after hardship hearings, and then to 180, who filled out a 25-page questionnaire last week.
