DALLAS, TX -

(AP) - A jury considering charges against a former Dallas police officer who fatally shot her upstairs neighbor in his apartment has paused deliberation.

Amber Guyger is charged with murder in the September 2018 killing of Botham Jean.

The jury can find Guyger guilty of murder, manslaughter or no crime. They deliberated Monday afternoon until 5p.m. and are expected to resume at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The 31-year-old police officer was off-duty but still in uniform when she shot Jean in his apartment, which was directly above hers. Guyger testified that she mistook his apartment for her own and thought the 26-year-old accountant was an intruder.

Guyger was fired after the shooting.

The trial began Sept. 29.
