Breonna Taylor Grand Jury Records Released

Recordings of the Breonna Taylor grand jury proceedings have been made public by Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron.

Cameron is calling the roughly 20 hours of materials a "complete picture" of the events surrounding the death of the 26-year-old EMT. About 3 minutes and 50 seconds was redacted from the audio, though CNNreports the court received an un-redacted version under seal.

On the tapes, investigative officials with the AG can be heard making the case that eventually led to just three wanton endangerment charges against one officer, Det. Brett Hankison.

Critics contend Cameron has made contradictory statements about the evidence presented to the panel, but the AG has said the grand jury could have considered other charges against the three officers involved.

The release comes after a 48-hour delay. Cameron's office had sought a one week extension.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
