The CBN News Daily Rundown


Today is day two in the murder trial of Amber Guyger, a white Dallas police officer who fatally shot her black neighbor, Botham Jean.

Guyger said she was distracted by a phone call when she went into her neighbor's apartment a year ago. She thought she was in her own place and then shot the man who was there. She said she thought he was an intruder. It turned out that she had killed him in his own apartment.

The defense casts the shooting as a tragic mistake. Prosecutors question how Guyger could have missed all the clues that she was in the wrong apartment.
