The killing of Houston's Botham Jean is starting to look more like a CALUATED MURDER, by police officer Amber Guyger. New details of Botham's killing has been released, and it points to Amber MURDERING the innocent Botham - because he was a "noisy neighbor."
According to an arrest warrant, Officer Guyger's third floor apartment is directly above hers. And a new theory has emerged, that Officer Guyger went upstairs to CONFRONT Botham because of noise - and killed him.
Attorneys for Jean's family say two witnesses told them details that contradict Guyger's story. Those witnesses offer evidence that supports the noisy neighbor murder theory.
"They heard knocking down the hallway followed by a woman's voice that they believe to be officer Guyger saying, 'Let me in. Let me in,'" attorney Lee Merritt said.
Officer Guyger claims that when she arrived, the door was "ajar." She admits to barging in, and giving "verbal commands" to Botham, which she claims he ignored. The killer officer then fired her handgun twice, striking Botham once in the torso.
Officer Guyger then "turned on the…lights" and "called 911." She now claims that didn't mean too kill Botham, she was just "at the wrong apartment."
If the "noisy neighbor" theory is proven, then Officer Guyer should face First degree murder and the DEATH penalty. Right now, prosecutors only charged her with Manslaughter and she faces as little as 2 years in jail if convicted.
