Amber Guyger, the ex-Dallas cop who entered the wrong apartment and fatally shot 26-year-old Botham Jean, has been indicted on murder charges.
The grand jury’s indictment comes on the heels of deliberations and days of testimony from witnesses and Jean’s family.
Botham’s mother, Allison Jean told reporters, “I truly believe that she inflicted tremendous evil on my son. He didn’t deserve itHe felt safe in that apartment and he was violated.”
Family members added, “This is groundbreaking, but it is also just a start.” They also noted that the indictment “doesn’t mean the case itself will be a slam dunk.”
“We are elated that we’ve made this step but we are focused on seeing this case through.”
