Amber Guyger, 31 shot and killed Botham Jean in his apartment in September 2018. Guyger’s story is that she entered Jean’s apartment thinking it was hers, and believed she encountered a burglar who might kill her. Jean’s apartment was one floor above Guyger’s. Prosecutors argue that Guyger saw several numerous signs indicating she was on wrong floor and at the wrong apartment, including a skylight, a neighbor’s decorative planter, Jean’s red doormat and differences in the hallways.
Jurors, who began deliberating on Monday, were instructed to find whether Guyger is guilty of murder, manslaughter or neither. Prosecutors objected to applying the castle doctrine because Guyger was in Jean’s home — not the other way around. Although the judge allowed it and the defense leaned on it, it didn’t work and Guyger was found guilty of murder.
