5. Defense is trying to get her off - She "firmly and reasonably" acted in fear for her own life:

Her attorneys have argued that she "firmly and reasonably" acted in fear for her own life when she shot her upstairs neighbor, while prosecutors questioned how she missed several visual cues that indicated she was in the wrong apartment.

Guyger, who was later fired, looks panicked when she appears briefly in Officer Michael Leeís body-cam footage.

The lights in the apartment were on by the time first responders arrived, and Lee testified that Jeanís TV and laptop also were on. The footage shows a bowl of vanilla ice cream on his ottoman and an ironing board and iron set up nearby.

Ear buds lay on the floor near Jean and prosecutor Jason Hermus, a former police officer himself, suggested that he could have been wearing them when Guyger arrived. ...

On the counter also sat a bag of cookies, which he had crumbled into his ice cream. It had still been frozen when first responders arrived.

Three men who lived on the fourth floor of South Side Flats near the apartment where Jean was killed took the stand Tuesday afternoon.

One was Joshua Brown, who lived across the hall from Jean. He had been coming home the night of Sept. 6, 2018, when he heard what he thought sounded like "two people meeting by surprise."

He testified that he couldn't make out what they were saying and they were speaking at the same time. The prosecution asked if Brown had heard loud commands like "Hey, put your hands up!" or "Show me your hands!"

He said he had not. The two other neighbors who took the stand said the same.
