However, the former police officer claimed she mistook Jean’s apartment for hers and mistook him for an intruder.

They lived on different floors of the same apartment complex.

Guyger occupied the apartment directly beneath Jean’s.

But Guyger’s attorneys are contending that the evidence did not support a murder conviction.

As a result, they are requesting a lesser charge of criminally negligent homicide.

It carries a penalty of some two years in jail.

Botham Jean’s family have previously condemned Guyger’s appeal bid.
