Wrong Apartment Murder Trial-Part 3: TX v. Amber Guyger
Amber Guyger’s conviction for the murder of Botham Jean, after the ex-cop entered his apartment believing it was her own, didn’t end the drama surrounding her trial. The nation was captivated by her sentencing hearing, where 18-year-old Brandt Jean shockingly forgave his brother’s killer, followed shortly by a display of compassion from the judge that uplifted some and angered others. Then things really took a shocking turn when we learned of the brutal murder of Joshua Brown, one of the key witnesses in the trial. Vinnie and Seema break it all down and then take us into the Law Professor Murder Trial, a murder-for-hire case with as many twists and turns like a rollercoaster. For the latest updates and full trial coverage, watch Court TV.
Update: This podcast was recorded prior to the announcement of suspects and an arrest in the murder of Joshua Brown.
