Botham Jean Murder Trial

Guyger - Jean

On Thursday, fired Dallas police officer Amber Guyger appeared in court, her first time before the judge who will oversee her murder trial in the shooting death of 26-year old Harding University graduate Botham Jean.

Guyger was off-duty but in uniform last September when she killed Jean in his apartment. She told authorities she mistook Jean’s apartment for her own.

Texas District Judge Tammy Kemp set jury selection to begin on September 6th, exactly one year after Jean’s death.

Testimony is scheduled to begin September 23rd.
