McHenry County judge to preside over Daley nephew case
A judge in McHenry County will preside over the manslaughter trial of former Mayor Richard Daley’s nephew.
Richard Vanecko is accused of delivering a punch that killed of David Koschman in 2004.
On Friday, the Illinois Supreme Court assigned the Chief Judge of McHenry County Circuit Court to appoint a judge to preside over the high-profile trial.
A Cook County judge who was randomly assigned the case recently had links to Daley and withdrew. This prompted county judicial officials to ask the Supreme Court to find a judge from another county to handle the proceeding.
