Grand jury will decide charges for Dallas officer who allegedly killed neighbor
DALLAS (AP) — The case against a white Dallas police officer who shot and killed a black neighbor in the neighbor's home will be presented to a grand jury, which could decide on more serious charges than manslaughter, the district attorney overseeing the case said Monday. Lawyers for the victim's family questioned why it took three days for officer Amber Guyger to be charged and why she was so quick to use deadly force in her encounter with 26-year-old Botham Jean, who lived on a different floor in the same apartment complex. She told authorities she mistook the neighbor's unit for her own.
