The judge who will hear the manslaughter trial of Richard M. Daley’s nephew, has ties to the Daley family.

Richard Vanecko is accused of throwing the punch that killed david koschman outside a division street tavern in 2004.

The case was reassigned to McHenry County Kudge Maureen McIntyre.

But the Sun-Times reports, McIntyre’s live-in ex-husband, Raymond Henehan, once held a political patronage job during the administration of mayor Richard J. Daley.

It’s not clear whether that connection is strong enough to disqualify judge McIntyre from the Vanecko trial.
