Lawyer Says Murdered Witness In Amber Guyger Trial Tried To Avoid Testifying

One of the lawyers who represents the family of slain Saint Lucian Botham Jean, says a key witness in the case who was murdered on Friday tried to avoid giving testimony, US media reports say.

Attorney Lee Merritt was quoted by the New York Post as saying that Joshua Brown fled Texas for California where he remained as the Amber Guyger murder trial got underway.

But Merritt disclosed that prosecutors ‘hounded’ him, threatening to issue a warrant for his arrest if he did not appear in court, according to the publication.

Brown was gunned down on Friday night.

So far, police have made no arrests in his death and no motive has been established.

Brown is reported to have survived a shooting almost a year before his death.

Another man, identified as Nicholas Shaquan Diggs, died in that incident near a strip club in Dallas, CNN reported quoting Attorney Lee Merritt.

Brown testified in the trial of former Dallas cop, Amber Guyger, who fatally shot the unarmed Botham Jean in his own apartment, claiming that she thought Jean’s apartment was hers.

She was subsequently fired as a police officer, indicted for murder and jailed for ten years.
