CINCINNATI (AP) - The judge and lead prosecutor in a Cincinnati policeman’s ongoing murder trial have both won their elections.

Unofficial returns from all of Hamilton County’s precincts showed Common Pleas Judge Meghan Shanahan clinching election Tuesday over Democrat Alvertis Bishop. The Republican was appointed to the common pleas bench in 2015 and is a former municipal court judge and assistant prosecutor.

Republican county Prosecutor Joe Deters (DEE’-turs) won his fourth four-year term, defeating Democrat Alan Triggs.

Shanahan and Deters will be back in court Wednesday as closing arguments are expected in the murder trial of Ray Tensing, a former University of Cincinnati officer charged for fatally shooting an unarmed black motorist, Sam DuBose.
