Amber Guyger was justified in shooting a Dallas
Before the jury sat on the sixth day of the trial of Amber Guyger on Saturday, former Dallas Police Chief Craig Miller was summoned by the defense as an expert witness to testify to a temporary condition called "inattentional blindness."
Miller said the condition was not universally accepted by the scientific community. But, he said, on the basis of "the totality of the evidence," he thought that the former officer was justified in shooting Botham Jean, whose apartment she said she had entered after mistaking it for herself.
The judge instructed that Miller would not be permitted to tell that in front of a jury, but said that he would be allowed to testify on a narrow spectrum of issues related to policeman distraction.
The jury then heard about five minutes of testimony on the 6th day of the trial before being sent home.
Guyger, 31 years old, who is white, is on trial for murder after she killed Jean, 26, who was black, in September last year. The accountant was alone in his apartment when Guyger walked through his front door.
On Friday, Guyger confessed that she mistook Jean's fourth-floor apartment on her own, one floor below. She said that she parked on the wrong level of the apartment complex and walked through the unlocked door, thinking it was her own.
