She did something horrible. Significant prison time would be appropriate. She did not plan to kill him, some small slack for that.

How is the fact that she was a police officer relevant, given that she was not on duty at the time? She was not engaged in police business; she was a neighbor who went to the wrong door. What would your statement be had she not been a police officer at the time? Suppose she was a waitress? This is why never trust waitresses never?
The problem with her being a cop is that the police have a reputation of protecting there own from criminal charges.

No motive, at least no evidence of motive.
That we know of. Her story has changed a few times, so I'm betting there's some sort of motive. First, she said the door was ajar, then she says it was locked. Then we have neighbor witnesses who say they heard her banging on the door to be let in. Someone is telling the truth and someone is lying.

I'm gonna go with the witnesses who said she was banging on the door. If we go with that, then we have to assume she most likely knew the guy she shot. There is a lot missing here, and you don't need to watch cop shows to know that.

One thing we do know, she's lying. Both of her versions can't be true.

Amber went to his apartment for the sole purpose of shooting him dead. She knew that the thug cops and the cop-loving DA would do everything possible to ensure that she got away with it.

Yes, but in general, trust no one, including police, government, etc.

In United States law, depraved-heart murder, also known as depraved-indifference murder, is a type of murder where an individual acts with a "depraved indifference" to human life and where such act results in a death, despite that individual not explicitly intending to kill.

n United States law, depraved-heart murder, also known as depraved-indifference murder, is a type of murder where an individual acts with a "depraved indifference" to human life and where such act results in a death, despite that individual not explicitly intending to kill. In a depraved-heart murder, defendants commit an act even though they know their act runs an unusually high risk of causing death or serious bodily harm to a person. If the risk of death or bodily harm is great enough, ignoring it demonstrates a "depraved indifference" to human life and the resulting death is considered to have been committed with malice aforethought.[1][2] In some states, depraved-heart killings constitute second-degree murder,[3] while in others, the act would be charged with varying degrees of manslaughter.[4]

If no death results, such an act would generally constitute reckless endangerment (sometimes known as "culpable negligence") and possibly other crimes, such as assault.
