Jury convicts ex-police officer Amber Guyger who fatally shot her directly upstairs neighbor Botham Jean, when she mistakenly entered his apartment and fired her firearm, instead of following standard police procedure for her department.
In Texas, the sentence for murder is from five to 99 years in prison. The jury is expected to return Tuesday afternoon for the punishment phase of the trial.
They also asked why Guyger didn't radio in for help when she thought there was a break-in at her home.
Guyger said that going through the doorway with her pistol drawn, "was the only option that went through my head."
