Louisville Police/AP Louisville Police/AP Myles Cosgrove, a Louisville Metro Police who investigators say fired the shot that killed Breonna Taylor, is fighting to get his job back. He and another officer were fired in connection with the incident. Cosgrove and his attorney began to appeal his case before the Louisville Metro Police Merit Board on Tuesday, with at least one more session on Wednesday and more days in December if needed. The merit board, a seven-member body of civilians and officers, will determine whether Cosgrove's Jan. 5 termination by then-Chief Yvette Gentry was reasonable. Following the hearings, the board could decide whether to uphold his termination or overturn it and issue a new punishment, according to member station WFPL.
