Kenneth Walker’s allegations against him were dismissed with prejudice by a judge in Jefferson County Circuit Court.
Kenneth was accused of killing an officer last year when they broke into Breonna Taylor’s apartment during a raid and killed her, as many of you know. Kenneth said several times that he had no idea the officers were at the door until they went inside, as previously noted.
Kenneth was charged with assault and attempted murder after Metro police Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly was shot in the leg, according to WLKY. Kenneth’s charges against him were dropped with prejudice on Monday. Last May, the charges against him were dismissed with prejudice, meaning they may have been re-filed if new evidence were available.
Kenneth said that one of the officers told him it was unfortunate that he wasn’t shot during the shooting in his first interview since the shooting last October.
Kenneth told Gayle King more about the shooting, including how he left the apartment and was surrounded by cops, saying, “I didn’t know what to think, and I really wasn’t worried about me. The only reason I’m even out here is that the only way for her to get help in there is for me to be out here.”
Prosecutors said in a court filing, according to CBS News, that investigation are ongoing “into this matter have concluded and no new information relevant to the charges against (Walker) in this matter has been brought to the Commonwealth’s attention.”
