Amber Guyger faces a murder charge in the slaying of Botham Jean. Guyger told authorities she mistakenly entered Jean’s apartment thinking it was her own and fatally shot him.
Moreover, Jury selection is slated to start Friday. Also, the one-year anniversary of Jean’s death.
Correspondingly, Guyger’s lawyers have asked that the trial be moved . They argue “prejudicial” media coverage and public officials’ actions have made it impossible to assemble an untainted jury. Jean was a native of St. Lucia who worked in Dallas for an accounting and consulting firm. Jean’s lawyer stated the trial should be held in Dallas County.
