McHenry County judge named in Daley nephew’s case

McHenry County Judge Maureen P. McIntyre was selected to preside over Richard Vanecko’s involuntary manslaughter trial.

Vanecko is former Mayor Daley’s nephew. He’s charged with punching David Koschman back in April 2004. Koschman fell to the street, hit his head head and died several days later.

McHenry County Chief Judge Michael J. Sullivan was asked to pick someone to oversee the trial because a Cook County judge had to recuse himself. He announced appointment of McIntyre in a one-page order released Friday afternoon.

McIntyre is currently the presiding judge of the court’s Family Division, hearing mostly cases of juvenile abuse and neglect, delinquency, and adoption. She was retained by voters in November to a six-year term. She has been on the bench in McHenry County since 1996.
