Four current and former Louisville Metro Police officers are facing federal charges in connection with the fatal 2020 shooting of Breonna Taylor at her South End apartment that touched off a firestorm of protest in the city and across the nation.
Former Louisville Metro Police detective Joshua Jaynes, 40, who was fired for lying on the search warrant that led to the deadly 2020 raid at Taylor's apartment, was taken into custody Thursday morning by the FBI and booked in the Oldham County Detention Center, according to attorney Thomas Clay, who is representing Jaynes.
Sgt. Kyle Meany, 35; Officer Kelly Hanna Goodlett, 35; and former detective Brett Hankison, 46; also were charged in the federal investigation of the March 13, 2020, death of Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency room technician whose name became a rallying cry for protesters during demonstrations against police brutality and systemic racism.
Meany was also booked into the Oldham County Detention Center Thursday, while Hankison agreed to turn himself in, according to jail logs and federal charging documents. Goodlett's info was not yet available in jail records. #goddamn47 #breoannataylor
