Detective Joshua Jaynes - who obtained the controversial no-knock search warrant for Taylor's home - and Detective Myles Cosgrove - who shot the fatal bullet, were terminated on Tuesday, The Courier Journal reported.
It comes days after the two officers received pre-termination letters stating they had violated department procedures during the botched drug investigation on March 13.

An investigation by the department's Professional Standards Unit found Jaynes violated procedures for preparation of a search warrant and truthfulness, his attorney Thomas Clay said.
No officers face charges in relation to Taylor's killing. One of the officers involved, Brett Hankison faces a charge of wanton endangerment for firing recklessly into a neighboring apartment. He has pleaded not guilty, and has since been fired.
Clay last week told the publication they would try to contest the decision at a pretermination hearing.
'Jaynes did nothing wrong,' he said.
