Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron on Wednesday was granted a delay in releasing grand jury recordings in the Breonna Taylor case. Judge Ann Bailey Smith ruled the recordings, initially set to be released on Wednesday, would instead be released at noon on Friday to give the attorney general’s office time to redact personal details from an estimated 20 hours of recordings.
Smith earlier ruled that the recordings must be made public after outrage over the decision to indict only one officer on charges of shooting into a neighboring apartment. One of the jurors had called on Cameron to release the information after questions emerged about the evidence presented. In a motion filed Wednesday, Cameron’s office asked for an extension to protect witnesses involved in the secretive multi-day hearing.
