(Worthy News) - Court trials will be under way this week for two white police officers accused of killing black motorists during separate traffic stops in 2015 – videotaped incidents that have helped fuel a firestorm of racial tension across the U.S.
Jury selection begins Monday in the trial of Michael Slager, 34, who is charged with a state murder count in the April 2015 shooting death of Walter Scott, 50, in North Charleston, S.C.
Meanwhile, former University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing, 26, is expected to testify in his own defense at his murder trial. Tensing is charged with murder in the shooting death of Sam DuBose, 43, during a July 2015 traffic stop in a Cincinnati neighborhood near the UC campus. [ Source ]
