Former Fort Worth police officer, Aaron Dean has been charged with murder.

Dean shot and killed Atatiana Jefferson while she was in her own home with her nephew. Earlier today, we reported that Dean had resigned from his position and stripped of his gun and badge. 

According to the interim Police Chief Ed Kraus stated that “if Dean had not resigned, he would have been fired for several policy violations, including the department’s use of force and de-escalation policies, and unprofessional conduct.”

Jefferson’s family lawyer made a statement about the recent news. 

The former officer was responding to a 911 welfare check when he murdered Jefferson.
