Fired Cop Amber Guyger Indicted on Murder Charge for Botham Jean Death
A Dallas grand jury has indicted former police officer Amber Guyger for the shooting death of Botham Jean, the Dallas Morning News reports. According to court records, Guyger was indicted on a murder charge after she shot Jean, an unarmed 26-year-old, in his apartment earlier this year. The grand jury started convening on Monday. Guyger was arrested on a manslaughter charge on Sept. 9, three days after the shooting occurred. Guyger claimed she had walked into the wrong apartment, mistaking it for her own, and shot Jean, believing him to be an intruder in her home. Other details, such as whether the two exchanged words before the shooting, are reportedly in dispute.
