The former white police in Dallas allegedly shot and killed his unarmed black neighbor in his apartment before saying she had wrongly been accused of a murder charge by a major jury on Friday.

Four-year-old police veteran Amber Guyger, 30, was initially accused of death three days after September 6, killing Botham Shem Jean, 26, a resident of the Caribbean Island. Lucia and Dallas auditor.

As the NPR reported after the aftermath of controversial killing,

“An explanation for a arrest warrant says that the official found the door of what she thought was her own apartment. It says it was dark inside, she saw a man’s silhouette and she gave him orders that He did not follow. She told investigators that she thought the man was a burglar.

“A lawyer for the family contested the version of the events, according to WFAA TV. Lee Merritt said that he was talking to two witnesses who said they were knocking on a door and a woman they thought was officer and said, “Let me come in.” He also said that Jean had put a red carpet on his door to separate his apartment from the others …

“Death kicked shock in society – and speculation about whether Guyger’s explanation should be taken to the nominal value. The race’s element: Guyger is white, Jean was black. “

Death rejected protests from those who questioned why Guyger was not taken care of and why it took three days before she was accused of death. 19659008] Last week, Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson NPRs Here and Now announced that a murder charge against Guyger was appropriate.

At a press conference on Friday, Johnson denied that she had been waiting for a long time to seek a murder charge against Guyger.

“I did not push any political pressure to try to do it earlier because it was not fair,” Johnson said as a quote from Dallas Morning News. “Justice was to do it when we did it.”

Guys were fired from the Dallas Police Department almost three weeks after the killing. The Jean family has filed a trial claiming excessive force.

She turned on Friday and sent a $ 200,000 band.

According to Morning News Guyger thought he was just the other Dallas police officers to be accused of murder for at least 45 years. If convicted, she faces imprisonment.
