LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — A recording of the grand jury proceedings in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor was released Friday, an unusual step meant to provide more transparency in a case that has drawn national attention.
Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron was required to give a redacted audio copy to Jefferson Circuit Judge Ann Bailey Smith, who had ordered their release. Kentucky’s criminal code allows the secretive grand jury work to be made public in some circumstances.
WDRB News obtained the recording Friday morning — which Cameron’s office has said is more than 20 hours — and has begun reviewing it. Reporters will be posting updates here throughout the day.
