There's a new appointment in the investigation of Evansville City Council woman Stephanie Brinkerhoff-Riley.
Gibson County Prosecutor, Robert Krieg, has been assigned as the new special prosecutor. He will determine if any charges should be filed against Brinkerhoff-Riley in regards to her secret recordings earlier this year.
Krieg replaces Vanderburgh County Prosecutor Nick Hermann who recused himself, saying he used to work with the councilwoman at a law firm years ago.
