The former Dallas officer who shot and killed an unarmed black man inside his apartment, which she said she mistook for her own, was indicted Friday on a murder charge.

Amber Guyger, 30, was arrested on Sept. 9, three days after she allegedly shot Botham Jean. She was initially arrested on a manslaughter charge and was released from jail on $300,000 bond the same day she was arrested.


Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson said during a press conference that a grand jury returned the murder charge after they "presented evidence, and explained the law."

"We did a full, complete presentation to the grand jury," Johnson said, declining to say what evidence was shown to the grand jury.

“At the moment of this shooting, it was an intentional and knowing offense,” she said.

4. Not sure this rises to the level of murder, but it definitely qualifies for manslaughter.

I'd hate to see them lose a conviction due to prosecutorial overreach.

14. Something must have turned up that had them upgrade the charge to murder

I would like to know what it is.

Most state have an option for conviction on lesser charges at trial.

16. that is exactly what will happen

 

Murder requires specific intent. An imposible hill to climb in this case.
