LOUISVILLE, Ky. — After a hearing lasting three days to appeal his termination, the Louisville Police Merit Board voted unanimously to uphold the termination of former LMPD detective Joshua Jaynes. Jaynes was fired and accused of lying on a search warrant that was used to justify a raid on Breonna Taylor's home, ultimately leading to her death.
"I move that the board uphold the decision of the chief of police to terminate Joshua Jaynes," one board member said upon reaching their decision.
