Jury deliberations underway for former officer on trial for murder

The fate of the former Dallas police officer who shot and killed her neighbor now lies in the hands of the jury.

Deliberations resume today in the Amber Guyger murder trial.

The former officer is charged with killing Bothan Jean inside his own apartment last year.

She claims she mistook his apartment for her own but prosecutors don't buy it.

The jury could find her guilty of murder, guilty of manslaughter or innocent.

We'll send out a push alert on our mobile app as soon as that verdict comes in.
