There will be no third trial for the former University of Cincinnati police who killed an unarmed motorist.  

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters says he can't try Raymond Tensing again on murder and voluntary manslaughter charges for the death of Samuel DuBose if he doesn't believe he can get a conviction.

Hamilton County prosecutor Joe Deters has decided not to press charges against the family of the 3-year old child who fell into the Cincinnati Zoo’s gorilla exhibit. That resulted in the fatal shooting of a 17-year-old endangered gorilla last week, leading to an outcry from animal rights groups and local citizens.

Deters says while the gorilla’s death is unfortunate, the child’s safety is more important.
