One of the former police detectives into the death of black paramedic Breonna Taylor is set to plead guilty.

Former Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD) Detective Kelly Goodlett was charged on August 4 for conspiracy.

According to the Justice Department, Goodlett, along with fellow LMPD police detective Joshua Jaynes, ‘took steps to cover up’ their actions by ‘falsifying an investigative document’.

According to the indictment, Goodlett and Jaynes met after work hours several days after Taylor’s death and planned their coverup in Jaynes’ garage.

Jaynes was also charged with conspiracy, as well as falsifying a report to impede a criminal investigation, and drafting a false affidavit.

Goodlett is set to plea guilty at a hearing on August 22. She was released after paying her $10,000 bond.
