On the night of March 13, when three plainclothes officers fatally shot Taylor eight times at her apartment, Glover had already been taken into custody.

Taylor had been asleep beside her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker.

No drugs were ultimately found in her apartment.

Five months later, none of the three officers involved in Taylor’s death have been arrested.

Glover’s bail has been set at $50,000.
