Dallas Cop Warns Of Chaos If Amber Guyger Is Found Not Guilty

Trial Begins For Former Dallas Cop Who Killed Botham Jean In His Own Apartment

Botham Jean’s parents anxious about upcoming trial, says Dallas County DA

While numerous fatal shootings by police officers prompt scrutiny, Jean's death received particularly intense attention because of the unusual circumstances.

'I thought it was my apartment, ' she said almost 20 times in a 911 emergency call as she waited for emergency responders to arrive.

Amid an outcry, Guyger was arrested days later on a manslaughter charge and then fired after almost five years with the department.

The parents of a man killed by a fired Dallas police officer are reportedly anxious about the upcoming murder trial.

He noted that Jean was in his living room eating a bowl of vanilla ice cream when Guyger entered the apartment, which was one floor directly above her apartment.

A grand jury indicted her past year on a murder charge, something Guyger's attorney attributed at the time to the political pressure of the moment.

"I thought I was in my apartment".

She has pleaded not guilty, with her attorney calling the shooting "a bad tragedy that resulted from a true mistake", CNN reports.

Though each apartment required a "unique door key, with an electronic chip" to gain access, Jean's front door was "slightly ajar" when Guyger arrived and it opened "under the force" of her entering her key, the affidavit claims.

Her entrance alerted Jean to her presence, cops said.

The family spent the anniversary of the shooting promoting good deeds in Jean's native St. Lucia.

"Jean had an enthusiasm for life that was contagious", the complaint said.

It sparked anger in the African-American community, which saw the case as potentially another one of a white police officer getting off lightly for killing a black man.

Guyger's attorney will present an opening statement later Monday.

The civil case has been put on hold by a judge until the completion of the criminal case, according to Daryl K. Washington, another attorney for the Jean family.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys are under a gag order prohibiting them from speaking to the media about the case, according to the Dallas Morning News, but the newspaper reported that before that order was issued, an attorney for Guyger said the shooting was "a tragic mistake" rather than murder.

She has remained free on bond. Guyger was sacked after Jean's death. The prosecutor said Guyger's partner would testify in the trial. It was also made public that marijuana was found in Jean's apartment, which was seen by some as an attempt to attack his reputation.
