CINCINNATI (AP) – A University of Cincinnati police officer charged with murder for shooting a motorist he had stopped over a missing front license plate is scheduled for trial in November.

A judge on Wednesday set a Nov. 16 trial date for 25-year-old Ray Tensing in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court.

The university fired Tensing shortly after his indictment on charges of murder and voluntary manslaughter in the July 19 death of 43-year-old Samuel DuBose. Tensing has pleaded not guilty. His attorney has said Tensing feared being dragged under the car as DuBose tried to drive away.

Tensing wasn’t in court Wednesday. His attorney has said he plans to ask that the trial be moved to another county but isn’t optimistic that will happen.
