As the demand for justice for Breonna Taylorcontinues, her case is expected to go in front of a grand jury soon, according to new reports.
An insider told CNN that the grand jury,
“will be hearing other criminal cases first to get their feet wet with the process and then hear the Taylor case.”
Breonna Taylor was unfortunately fatally shot by police after officers executed a no-knock warrant at her apartment in March. The officers involved have yet to be arrested, despite nationwide protests calling for justice.
The grand jury will also determine what charges, if any, to the three policemen – Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly and officers Brett Hankison and Myles Cosgrove.
Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron released a statement on Twitter Wednesday (Sept. 9th). It reads,
“My office is continually asked about a timeline regarding the investigation into the death of Ms. Breonna Taylor. An investigation, if done properly, cannot follow a specific timeline. When the investigation concludes and a decision is made, we will provide an update about an announcement. he news will come from our office and not unnamed sources. Until that time, the investigation remains ongoing.”
One of the lawyers for Breonna Taylor’s family said of the upcoming grand jury hearing:
“If they emerge with indictments that are only in relation to the actual shooting, we would have plenty of questions regarding all of the criminal actions leading up to and after the shooting.”
