A Jefferson County Circuit Court judge who signed the falsified search warrant that led Louisville Metro Police officers to Breonna Taylor’s apartment the night she got murdered.

Judge Mary Shaw of District 5 fell short of securing her position on Election Day to Tracy Evette Davis. According to the Jefferson County Clerk’s Office, Davis received 51% of the votes, with 100,870 votes cast in her favor, compared to Shaw’s 98,503, or 49%.

Shaw was elected in 2006 and took the bench in January 2007, according to her website. She was a circuit court staff attorney for more than 16 years.

Ahead of the Tuesday night decision, Shaw faced immense criticism and backlash for her involvement in the signing of the falsified warrant, which ultimately resulted in the death of Taylor, a 26-year-old woman and Louisville emergency room technician, in March 2020.

The warrant was one of five obtained by detectives who were looking into potential drug trafficking in Louisville, according to the Department of Justice.

The primary target of the investigation was Jamarcus Glover, Taylor’s ex-boyfriend and a man who had been previously arrested for drug trafficking. Glover did not live at the residence.
