The Fort Worth, Texas cop who fatally shot Atatiana Jefferson in her own home has been arrested and charged with murder.

Fort Worth PD released a mugshot of Dean following his arrest on Monday evening. He was booked into the Tarrant County Jail and his bond was set at $200,000, Fox 5 DC reports.

Dean, 35, reportedly refused to cooperate with police investigators. He resigned from the Fort Worth police force on Monday morning.
