DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Accused killer, and former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger is in the courtroom again.
Out on bond since she was charged with murder last year, almost a year has passed since Guyger shot and killed Botham Jean at the South Side Flats apartment building.
She lived in a unit one floor directly below Jean and claims she mistook him for a burglar after walking in the wrong apartment.
Guyger’s attorneys will argue that shooting someone because of a mistake does not constitute murder.
Many of the issues on the table for discussion in the two day hearing are procedural and related to evidence and jury selection.
