A grand jury will finally hear Breonna Taylor’s case — and it could be as soon as next week.
Taylor was gunned down by Louisville officers after they broke into her Louisville apartment while executing a search warrant in March. Police were looking for Taylor’s ex-boyfriend, Jamarcus Glover, who they allege had been using Taylor’s apartment as a place to keep drugs and money.
No drugs or money were found in Taylor’s apartment. Glover had publicly denied Taylor’s involvement in any illegal activities. Glover claimed that he was offered a plea deal if he named Taylor as a co-defendant. He did not.
Commonwealth’s Attorney Tom Wine released a statement denying Breonna Taylor was a co-defendant.
“Breonna Taylor was never a Co-Defendant in the Jamarcus Glover case. A case including Breonna Taylor as a Co-Defendant was never presented to the Grand Jury nor did our office ever consider presenting one to the Grand Jury with her name. Our office has not and does not posthumously indict any person who is deceased,” Wine wrote.
The killing of the unarmed EMT sparked protests around the country.
The case will be presented before a grand jury in Louisville at an undisclosed location, according to WAVE.
Following the grand jury’s decision, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron will make a public announcement to share his office’s investigative findings and the grand jury’s decision on possible indictments for the three officers who fired their weapons that night.
On Thursday, David Cameron — the first Black attorney general in Kentucky’s history — offered little information on the behind the scenes of the Taylor case, stating the “investigation remains ongoing.”
