The hearing before a panel of judges will examine a Dallas County jury’s 2019 decision to sentence Guyger to 10 years in prison for murder. It comes as a jury’s finding that a former Minneapolis police officer was guilty of murdering George Floyd has again focused national attention on police killing people of color.
