In Kentucky, Republican Attorney General Daniel Cameron said Tuesday he never asked a grand jury to consider homicide charges for the three police officers who shot into the home of 26-year-old African American Louisville resident Breonna Taylor last March, killing her. Cameron was speaking with a Louisville TV station about the three white plainclothes officers who burst into Taylor’s home as they served a no-knock warrant in March: Myles Cosgrove, Jonathan Mattingly and Brett Hankison.
Attorney General Daniel Cameron: “Well, basically, your question is about whether we recommended any murder charges against Cosgrove and Mattingly. And the answer is no. Ultimately, our judgment is that the charge that we could prove at trial beyond a reasonable doubt was for wanton endangerment against Mr. Hankison.”
Kentucky Attorney General Cameron is due to release recordings from grand jury proceedings in Breonna Taylor’s killing today, following a judge’s order they be made public.
