This upcoming March will be a year since the murder of Breonna Taylor. Many people around the world continue to demand that justice be properly served in Breonna’s case. On Tuesday, the Louisville Police Department announced that they fired two more officers that were involved with the fatal shooting.
According to CNN, copies of the officers’ termination letters show that Detective Myles Cosgrove was terminated on Tuesday for firing 16 rounds into Breonna’s apartment and failing to activate his body camera. The letter also revealed that Detective Joshua Jaynes, who had written the search warrant for the raid on Taylor’s home, was also fired.
Detective Jaynes was fired for “failing to complete a Search Warrant Operations Plan form” and also being untruthful about verifying that Breonna’s previous boyfriend, Jamarcus Glover, had been receiving packages at her apartment.
Last week, both officers received pre-termination letters before officially being fired.
CNN reports that both men can appeal the dismissal, which would cause a review by the LMPD Merit Board and could ultimately lead to a public hearing.
As previously reported, Brett Hankison was originally the only officer that had been fired following the killing of Breonna Taylor. He would later be charged with three counts of wanton endangerment for his bullets going inside of the neighboring apartments, but not for Breonna’s death.
At the time of his termination, Hankison was accused of “blindly” firing 10 rounds into Breonna’s apartment, “creating a substantial danger of death and serious injury.”
Nonetheless, none of the officers responsible for murdering Breonna Taylor have been directly charged or arrested for her murder.
