Body cam video by Botham Jeans last moments that were suddenly played in court. His parents were not ready



Allison and Bertrum Jean leaned over their seats and looked at the floor of the courtroom. Bertrum held his hands over his ears and turned to the wall beside his seat.

After a few minutes, Botham's parents and family and friends got up to leave.

District Judge Tammy Kemp has requested that the footage of the body cameras be played on Wednesday, the third day of the Dallas murder trial.

The video showed Dallas police executing HLW in Botham on September 6, 2018, shortly after duty-free Dallas policeman Amber Guyger shot and killed the 26-year-old accountant in his home. Guyger told the police she thought she was entering her flat one floor down and had encountered a burglar. She is charged with murder.
The material was recorded on the body camera of one of the officers who responded to Guyger's call at 91
1. It was played in the courtroom on Tuesday, but Allison Jean, along with Botham's sister Allisa Findley, 37, and other family members were able to leave before being shown.

Bothams parents saw the video on Wednesday for the first time, a family lawyer told CNN, S. Lee Merritt. The jeans did not know that the judge would ask to see the footage, Merritt said.

When Allison and Bertrum Jean left, Kemp found that the family was still in the room.

"I'm so sorry, I did not care about the family of the alleged victim," Kemp said.

  How Botham Jean's mother prepares to face the former police officer who killed her son

Last April, Allison Jean heard the distress call Guyger had dropped after the shootout and felt an anger that surprised her. She could not hear anyone who helped Botham when he lay in his house and died, Jean told CNN in an interview from St. Lucia where she lived and raised Botham.

Guyger seemed more concerned that she lost her job than her son, she said.

Ever since Jean heard the distress call, he was preparing to get through the process and face the murderer of her son. In therapy sessions, she had worked through scenarios that she might encounter in court and ways to deal with them. From August she laid the Saturdays for fasting and prayer free.

Findley and Botham's brother Brandt stayed in the courtroom when the footage was played on Wednesday.

More than an hour later, the jeans returned. Bertrum Jean was still wiping his eyes.
