Ex-Dallas police officer Guyger found guilty of murder

Ex-Dallas police officer Amber Guyger was found guilty on Tuesday of murder when she accidentally walked into a neighbor's apartment thinking it was her own and shot him dead as he ate ice cream.

The Sept. 6, 2018, killing of Botham Jean, a 26-year-old black PwC accountant, by a white officer sparked street protests, particularly when prosecutors initially opted to bring the lesser charge of manslaughter against Guyger, 31.

Guyger faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison for the slaying. She testified in her own defense during her trial, tearfully expressing regret for shooting Jean but saying she had believed her life was in danger when she pulled the trigger.
