A special prosecutor released new information about the Richard Vanecko trial.

Vanecko is charged with involuntary manslaughter for the 2004 death of David Koschman.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, prosecutor Dan Webb says Vanecko had been drinking for eight hours, before he punched Koschman during a fight on Division street.

Koschman fell, hit his head, and died about two weeks later.

Vanecko is the nephew of former mayor Richard Daley.

Webb says police and prosecutors have no notes from their interviews with Vanecko’s friends, from May 2004.

He also says Vanecko and his friends talked on the phone several times after Koschman was punched and during the investigation.
