TEXAS OFFICER FOUND GUILTY OF NEIGHBOR’S MURDER
Former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger was found guilty of murder Tuesday in last year’s fatal shooting of her upstairs neighbor, Botham Jean, in his apartment.
The guilty verdict came after only a few hours of deliberations and six days of testimony. Guyger, who was fired after the shooting, said that she mistook Jean’s apartment for her own after parking on the wrong floor at the complex on Sept. 6, 2018.
She faces five to 99 years in prison on the murder charge.
