Grand jury proceedings in the case of Breonna Taylor, an unarmed Black woman fatally shot by police, will be released on Wednesday, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron confirmed to news outlets.

Driving the news: Cameron's announcement late Monday came hours after a judge granted an unnamed juror's court motion seeking the release of last week's transcripts and related recordings.

  • "The Grand Jury is meant to be a secretive body," Cameron said in his statement. "It's apparent that the public interest in this case isn't going to allow that to happen." 

Of note: NBC News reports the juror's petition states, "Using the grand jurors as a shield to deflect accountability and responsibility for these decisions only sows more seeds of doubt in the process while leaving a cold chill down the spines of future grand jurors."

The big picture: Taylor died during a police raid on her Louisville home on March 13. None of the three officers were indicted on homicide or manslaughter charges related to Taylor's death.

  • Former Louisville police officer Brett Hankison was charged with three counts of wanton endangerment for shooting into an apartment next to Taylor's during the raid. He pleaded not guilty to the charges on Monday.
  • The announcement of the charges triggered nationwide protests last week.

Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer charged with murder in the death of George Floyd, was released from jail on Wednesday after posting a $1 million bond, court documents show.

Why it matters: The May killing of George Floyd, an unarmed Black man, set off months of protests and unrest across the U.S. Video of the incident shows Chauvin pinning Floyd's neck to the ground with his knee for eight minutes and 46 seconds as the handcuffed Black man cried out, "I can't breathe," before going unresponsive.
