DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Jury selection begins Friday in the murder trial against former Dallas Police officer Amber Guyger.
Guyger is charged in the shooting death of Botham Jean in September 2018.
Guyger said she walked into what she thought was her apartment, saw the man thinking he was a burglar, and shot and killed him.
On the 911 call, Guyger could be heard repeating “I thought it was my apartment” and also worrying about losing her job.
Guyger’s attorneys have argued for a change of venue, saying she can’t get a fair trial in Dallas County.
