Female Cop Indicted For Murder Of Botham Jean, DA Cites "Intentional Event"

Officer Who Killed Botham Jean in His Apartment Indicted for Murder		30 Nov 2018

Amber Guyger, the Dallas police officer who was sacked earlier this year following the fatal shooting of her black neighbor inside his apartment, was indicted by a grand jury Friday on a murder charge, according to court records.

Guyger was arrested three days later on a manslaughter charge, but remained on the city's payroll until September 24, when the Dallas Police Department fired Guygerfollowing an internal affairs review.

According to the Dallas Morning News, Jean's mother and sister took the stand before the grand jury this week, but little else is known about what evidence was presented.

Guyger told investigators that after finishing a 15-hour shift, she returned home in uniform and parked on the fourth floor of her apartment complex's garage, rather than the third floor, where her unit was located, according to an affidavit prepared by the Texas Rangers.

A prosecutor says a former Dallas police officer indicted on a murder charge for fatally shooting a black man after mistaking his apartment for her own has turned herself in. Still in her uniform, Guyger parked her vehicle in the complex and walked to what she believed was her apartment, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

In the affidavit, Guyger said that the door was "slightly ajar" and that the interior was dark when she entered, so she was unable to see that it was the wrong apartment. She was sacked weeks later by the Dallas Police Department.

Guyger's attorney, Robert Rogers, believes she should not be charged.

She said she gave several verbal commands to the individual, then drew her weapon and shot the man twice.

"We presented the evidence and we explained the law", Johnson said.

Dallas County District Attorney Johnson said at a press conference on November 30 that a grand jury returned the murder charge after they presented evidence, and explained the law.

On Sept. 9, she was arrested on a manslaughter charge and immediately bailed out.

Following Friday's news conference, Jean's parents spoke to reporters, expressing their satisfaction with the outcome of the grand jury's vote, reported Dallas News. "I feel for Botham Jean's family, and I can't imagine the pain they are going through".

Before the grand jury decision was handed down, Jean's family's attorney Lee Merritt asserted that he was hoping for a murder indictment. She quickly posted a $200,000 bond, almost three months after posting a $300,000 bond for the original manslaughter charge.

Allison Jean on Friday said she's pleased with the outcome of the grand jury hearing. The family has filed a lawsuit against Guyger and the city of Dallas.

Botham's mother Allison said, "They have been quite thorough in their investigation". She killed Jean in Apartment 1478, directly above her own abode.

Jean attended Sir Arthur Lewis Community College in St. Lucia, before migrating to the U.S. in 2011 to study accounting and management information systems at Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas. He became an accountant and a naturalized United States citizen after attending Harding University in Arkansas. She described it as a "tragic event" and asked people to pray for Jean's family. And then there's the element of race: "Guyger is white; Jean was black".
