Guyger is now facing life in prison after less than 24 hours of deliberation.

CNN details Guyger was indicted last year but had the option of being found guilty of manslaughter, a lesser offense.


The 31-year-old White woman stated in court she parked on the wrong floor of her Dallas apartment building on September 6, 2018, and Jean, a Black man, when she encountered him in his home.
