Jamarcus Glover biography: 13 things about Breonna Taylor’s ex-boyfriend from Louisville, Kentucky


Jamarcus Cordell Glover is a black man from Louisville, Kentucky, United States. His former girlfriend Breonna Taylor was fatally shot when Louisville Metro Police Department officers Jonathan MattinglyBrett Hankison and Myles Cosgrove raided her apartment in Louisville on March 13, 2020.

On March 12, 2020, Jefferson Circuit Judge Mary Shaw signed five affidavits written by LMPD detective Joshua C. Jaynes seeking permission for no-knock searches, one of which was at Taylor’s apartment in Louisville. According to the detective, he had verified that Glover had been receiving packages suspected of drugs to Taylor’s apartment through a US Postal Inspector, which Louisville postal inspector Tony Gooden denied on May 16, 2020.

“The police are trying to make it out to be my fault and turning the whole community out here making it look like I brought this to Breonna’s door,” Glover told The Louisville Courier Journal. “There was nothing never there or anything ever there, and at the end of the day, they went about it the wrong way and lied on that search warrant and shot that girl out there.”

After dating for about 2 and a half years, Glover and Taylor broke up but they kept in contact mostly through text messages and social media. Here are 13 more things about him:

  1. He previously lived in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA and in Winona, Mississippi, USA. In 2006, he attended the Mississippi Youth Challenge Program.
  2. In 2008, he was sentenced to prison for selling cocaine in Montgomery County, Mississippi.
  3. Kentucky court records show arrests dating to 2014 in multiple counties. In 2015, he pleaded guilty to first-degree possession of a controlled substance in Warren County and was sentenced to a year in jail.
  4. After an arrest in 2016, he pleaded guilty to cocaine possession in Jefferson County and served 10 days in jail. He is facing multiple trafficking charges in Jefferson County and a drunken driving charge in Hardin County. In the same year, the body of Damarius Bowman’s brother Fernandez Bowman was found in a car rented by Taylor. When LMPD detectives arrived at her home to question her, he was also there. She told the detectives she did not know Bowman, that she had been dating him for several months and that she had let him drive the rental car. She gave detectives her phone number, which was a number that he was still using as recently as February 2020. In September 2016, he returned to Kentucky.
  5. In 2017, Taylor posted bond for him twice.
  6. In 2018, he and Taylor broke up.
  7. In 2019, he had two criminal cases. He had two bench warrants issued on July 27, 2020 in connection with the two cases in which he failed to pay the higher bond set later by a judge.
  8. On January 2, 2020, the LMPD’s Place-Based Investigations (PBI) team saw him pull up in Taylor’s car to a suspected drug house on 2424 Elliott Avenue in Louisville. On January 3, 2020, following his arrest on trafficking and weapons charges, he called Taylor from the jail and asked her to contact Adrian Orlandes Walker, one of his co-defendants, to get bail money. She responded that Walker was already at the trap house, the slang term for a house used for drug trafficking. At the end of the call, she said she loved him and he said the same thing to her.
  9. On February 13, 2020, detectives watched through a pole camera mounted outside 2424 Elliott Avenue in Louisville as he and Taylor drove up to the suspected drug house in her black Dodge Charger. He got out, went inside, came out after a few minutes and they drove off. On February 14, 2020, his car was towed for a parking violation. On February 20, 2020, detectives from the PBI team verified through a database that he was also using her home address, which on 3003 Springfield Drive in Louisville. On February 24, 2020, detectives received his bank records from Chase Bank, on which he used 3003 Springfield Drive, Louisville as his mailing address.
  10. He was 29 years old when Taylor died on March 13, 2020. On the same day, he was arrested after police executed a no-knock search warrant at 2424 Elliott Avenue in Louisville. Calling from Louisville Metro Corrections in the morning that day, he told the mother of his child that Taylor had $8,000 of his money. When he called his child’s mother again from jail on April 24, 2020, he said police officers took his car and got “that bank statement out the armrest” where they got Taylor’s address on there.
  11. On July 13, 2020, Louisville law enforcement tried to offer him a plea deal in exchange for him naming Taylor as a co-defendant in a drug case but he rejected it, according to Sam Aguiar, one of the attorneys representing Taylor’s family. On August 26, 2020, he denied that Taylor had been holding money for him. At 11:32 a.m. on August 27, 2020, he was arrested and booked in the Louisville Metro Department of Corrections on a number of drug-related charges, including complicity possession of a controlled substance for cocaine and heroin, complicity trafficking in marijuana, complicity tampering with physical evidence and complicity to trafficking cocaine. His bond was set at $50,000.
  12. In October 2021, he pleaded guilty to numerous crimes, which mostly drug trafficking and possession. He was sentenced to five years of probation with an eight-year prison sentence if he violated the conditions of the agreement and was required to move to Mississippi.
  13. On January 19, 2022, he was arrested in Jeffersontown, Kentucky and charged with driving on a suspended license, possession of marijuana and possession of expired plates. On January 20, 2022, a judge released him on his own recognizance after he pleaded not guilty but on the same day, Jefferson Circuit Court Judge Olu Stevens ordered him arrested for violating the terms of his probation and held on a $5,000 cash bond.
