A grand jury is continuing its inquiry into how authorities handled the initial investigation of a fight involving the nephew of former Chicago Mayor Richard Daley that left another man dead. The grand jury today indicted Daley nephew Richard Vanecko for involuntary manslaughter in the 2004 death of a 21-year-old David Koschman after a fight outside a Chicago bar. Former U.S. Attorney Dan Webb is special prosecutor in the case. Webb's office issued a statement Monday saying the grand jury has reviewed thousands of documents and interviewed more than 50 witnesses. The statement says the grand jury's investigation of a possible cover-up by authorities ``continues at a vigorous pace.'' The 38-year-old Vanecko will be arraigned later this month. A message left for Vanecko's attorney was not immediately returned.
