In Louisville, Kentucky, prosecutors reportedly offered Breonna Taylor’s ex-boyfriend a plea deal if he named Taylor as a member of an alleged “organized crime syndicate” in return for leniency on drug charges. Jamarcus Glover turned down the plea deal. Prosecutors on Monday denied naming Breonna Taylor as a co-defendant in Glover’s case and argued a document leaked on social media was just a draft as part of early negotiations. An attorney for Taylor’s family who posted the photo on Facebook said it was a “desperate” attempt by prosecutors to justify Taylor’s killing. Protests have been ongoing to demand justice for Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency room technician, who was fatally shot by Louisville police in her own home in March. The officers involved in her killing have not been charged.
