Aaron Dean’s murder trial:

Aaron Dean, a former Fort Worth police officer, was found guilty of manslaughter by a Tarrant County jury on Thursday afternoon. The sentencing part of the case started on Friday morning. After the verdict was read, Dean was arrested and sent to a Tarrant County jail.

Carr is the mother of Atatiana’s 11-year-old nephew Zion Carr, who was there in the house when Dean fatally shot his aunt.

Following the verdict, Dean could have spent two to twenty years behind bars. Judge Gallagher would have to agree if the jury had recommended probate and had sentenced Dean to 10 years or less.

According to Tanya Eiserer of WFAA, an investigative reporter, Dean was not eligible for probation or an appeal bond if the sentence was longer than ten years. On Monday, December 5, the murder trial officially opened.

On December 15, 2022, a Tarrant County jury found Dean guilty of manslaughter rather than murder in relation to Jefferson’s passing. He was given an 11 years, 10 months, and 12 days in state prison sentence by the same jury five days later. Dean’s counsel submitted a motion earlier this month asking for a new trial and for him to be released on bond from the state prison.

Atatiana Jefferson’s now 11-year-old nephew Zion Carr, the neighbour who called 911 to seek a welfare check at Jefferson’s house, Dean’s former partner, and Dean himself were among the witnesses who testified throughout the trial for both the prosecution and defence. After five days of testimony and more than 13 hours of debate, the verdict was reached.

On Dec. 20, the day after Dean’s punishment was announced, Ashley Carr took the witness stand to read a statement from Amber Carr, who was ill and unable to attend the hearing.

Amber wrote,

“No amount of sentencing would make me feel as though we received some type of justice,”

“Atatiana should still be here. She had big dreams and goals.”

Zion Carr, the son of Amber Carr, was 8 years old when Dean murdered his aunt. Jefferson and Zion were playing computer games together in their home.

Amber continued,

Zion “has the weight of the world on his shoulders,” “… He will become a successful young man the way that his Aunt Tay would want him to be.”

Though we send the family our heartfelt condolences, we understand that it will never make up for the emptiness that they are feeling since Amber’s sister, Atatiana was taken away from them in October of 2019.

It’s a lingering sadness. A domino effect of pain. An avalanche of sorrow.
