The special prosecutor pursuing the manslaughter case against Richard Daley’s nephew has agreed to work for free.

Dan Webb will press for the conviction of Richard Vanecko in connection with a street fight in 2004 that killed David Koschman outside a Division Street night club.

Vanecko is charged with involuntary manslaughter for throwing the punch that killed Koschman.

With Webb working pro-bono, Cook County taxpayers will only have to pay for the court expenses for the trial.
