Breonna Taylor and Kenneth Walker are seen in an undated photo. Walker was with girlfriend Taylor, 26, at her Louisville apartment on March 13 when cops barged in to serve a search warrant. Cops claim Walker fired at them during a drug probe as three officers forcibly entered Taylor’s apartment and fatally shot her at least eight times, reported CNN .
Walker’s attorney, Rob Eggert, filed a motion on Thursday to have the charges of attempted murder of a police officer and first-degree assault tossed.
Wine maintained there had ben neither misleading testimony by the detective in this case nor any ethical breaches, as Walker’s attorney claimed.
But prosecutors conceded, “More should have been presented to the grand jury, including the statement of Kenneth Walker.”
“I believe that additional investigation is necessary. I believe that the independent investigation by the Attorney General’s Office must be completed before we go forward with any prosecution,” said Wine. “If after those reviews, we believe there is sufficient evidence to present this matter to the grand jury, we will do so. And if he wishes to testify before the grand jury, Kenneth Walker will be given that opportunity.”
