|CHICAGO (AP) -- The nephew of former Chicago Mayor Richard Daley has been indicted for involuntary manslaughter in the 2004 death of a 21-year-old suburban man outside a Chicago bar.
Richard Vanecko was indicted Monday in the death of David Koschman of Mount Prospect. Koschman and Vanecko got into a fight outside the bar. Koschman fell and struck his head after Vanecko punched him. He died days later. The charges come after an investigation by the Chicago Sun-Times. Koschman's family has contended there was a police cover-up during the initial investigation.
A Cook County judge appointed former U.S. Attorney Dan Webb as special prosecutor. Vanecko will be arraigned later this month.
A man answering a phone number listed to Vanecko hung up. A message left for Vanecko's attorney was not immediately returned.
