Lawyers for two news organizations are asking a judge to unseal a special prosecutor's report examining the 2004 death of a man who was killed in a fight with the nephew of Chicago's former mayor.

The Chicago Sun-Times and WMAQ-TV want a judge to release the 162-page document reviewing the investigation into the death of David Koschman.

Special President Dan Webb said no charges will be filed against police or prosecutors who handled the case because the statute of limitations had expired.

Richard J. Vanecko is the nephew of Mayor Richard Daley and is set to stand trial in February for involuntary manslaughter for the 21-year-old's death.

Koschman died days after hitting his head in a fight with Vanecko outside a Chicago bar.

Vanecko's lawyers haven't seen the report either.
