A grand jury in Kentucky has charged former Louisville police detective Brett Hankison with three counts of wanton endangerment in the case of Breonna Taylor who was killed by police fire in March. The charges were related to other circumstances and not directly to the death of Breonna herself. Other officers involved in the incident were also not charged. Marisa Iati, national reporter for the Washington post, joins us for the latest developments in Breonna Taylor’s case.

Next, a look back at the early days of the pandemic and the first nursing home outbreak at the Life Care Center of Kirkland in Washington. Forty-six people died there, but did those deaths have to happen? The way that COVID-19 tore through the facility is a cautionary tale for the way we operate nursing homes in the U.S. There were failures at many steps during the way, all while residents and workers saw some of their friends get sick and die. Katie Engelhart, contributor to California Sunday Magazine, spent months investigating what happened and joins us for how it all played out.
