CHICAGO – The Cook County state’s attorney office has agreed to a $50,000 settlement with the mother of David Koschman.

He died eleven years ago of a brain injury after the nephew of former Mayor Richard Daley punched him during a drunken fight.

Nanci Koschman accused prosecutors of covering for Daley’s nephew, Richard Vanecko.

The city paid her $250,000 five months ago to drop similar claims against the Chicago Police Department which twice refused to seek charges against Vanecko.

Vanecko pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter last year and spent 60 days in jail.
