LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky’s attorney general is seeking to delay the release of records in the Breonna Taylor grand jury proceeding just as it was set to be released to the public.

Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s office filed a motion Wednesday morning asking for a week delay to the release so officials could redact names and personal information from the recording.

A court in Louisville was expected to release the audio recordings on Wednesday.

A grand jury member sued to have the record of the proceedings opened to the public. Attorney General Daniel Cameron has acknowledged that he never asked the grand jury to consider homicide charges against police in Taylor's killing.

He revealed in a statement Monday that wanton endangerment was the only charge his prosecutors recommended.

The grand jury ultimately indicted one officer for firing bullets that entered the home of Taylor's neighbors.
