A special prosecutor will investigate the death of Molly Young.
Jackson County State’s Attorney Mike Carr says he decided to ask for one after the Young family started questioning Carr’s bias towards case.
Young was found dead from a gunshot wound in the apartment of her ex-boyfriend, Richie Minton, who worked as a Carbondale Police Dispatcher on March 24th of last year.
Carr said earlier this month that he was the best person to prosecute the case, but no charges would be filed and the case would remain open.
Carr did not say who the special prosecutor will be.
