Daley nephew due in Chicago criminal court

CHICAGO — The nephew of former Chicago Mayor Richard Daley is due in court after being charged in the 2004 death of a suburban man.

Richard Vanecko is scheduled to appear at an arraignment Monday morning.

Last week, a grand jury indicted Vanecko for involuntary manslaughter in the death of 21-year-old David Koschman.

The grand jury is continuing its inquiry into whether authorities covered up or impeded the investigation of a relative of the city's most powerful man.

Former U.S. Attorney Dan Webb is special prosecutor in the case. He says the grand jury has reviewed thousands of documents and interviewed more than 50 witnesses.

Koschman's family contends there was a police cover-up and asked for a special prosecutor.
