LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky police detective facing termination in connection with his role in the raid that left Breonna Taylor dead has met with his police chief. Detectives Myles Cosgrove and Joshua Jaynes received notice last week from Louisville Police Interim Chief Yvette Gentry that she intends to fire them. Both were scheduled to appear for termination hearings Monday. A statement from Jaynes' attorneys said that he met with Gentry to explain his perspective surrounding the investigation and is awaiting Gentry’s decision. Cosgrove’s attorney did not reply to a message seeking information about his status on Monday. Taylor, a Black woman, was killed March 13 by police executing a narcotics search warrant.
