Breonna Taylor grand jury testimony released

Grand jury testimony in the Breonna Taylor case was released today, following an extraordinary request from a juror who said the prosecutor misled the public about why none of the officers who killed her were charged. The tapes run for 14 hours, meaning that it will be very late Friday before their contents can be reasonably reported on.

Jefferson County Circuit Court Judge Ann Bailey Smith directed prosecutors to file the recording during an arraignment hearing Monday for Brett Hankison, the former Louisville Metro Police Department detective who is the only officer indicted on criminal charges from the night in March when police shot and killed Taylor.

Hankison has pleaded not guilty to three counts of wanton endangerment — he's charged not with contributing to Taylor's death but to firing his weapon indiscriminately, sending bullets into a neighboring apartment. Cameron said his office determined that the other two officers in the case, Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly and Detective Myles Cosgrove, didn't break the law when they fired multiple rounds into Taylor's apartment during a botched drug raid.
