Release of Grand Jury Recordings in Breonna Taylor’s Killing Delayed Until Friday

HeadlineOct 01, 2020

In Kentucky, a federal judge has delayed the release of recordings of grand jury proceedings in the case of Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old African American medical worker who was killed last March by white Louisville officers in plainclothes who burst into her home while executing a no-knock warrant. Republican Attorney General Daniel Cameron had asked the judge for a one-week extension to make the recordings public; the judge allowed him to delay their release until Friday. This week, Cameron admitted he never asked the grand jury to consider murder charges for the three police officers who shot Taylor.
