The city of Louisville has agreed to a $12 million settlement with the family of Breonna Taylor. The settlement was announced on Tuesday.
Taylor, 26, was shot to death by police in her apartment six months ago. The deal will include police reforms including a requirement that commanders approve all search warrants before going before a judge, a source told the Courier Journal.
The news of a settlement comes as a grand jury prepares to review evidence in the case this week.
The largest amount Louisville has ever paid in a settlement was $8.5 million to Edwin Chandler in 2012, the Courier Journal reported.
Chandler was wrongfully imprisoned for more than nine years after Detective Mark Handy perjured himself.
