From the report:

A spokesman for the Commonwealth's Attorney Thomas B. Wine declined to comment when reached Friday morning.

"We don't comment on investigations that we are doing," spokesman Jeff Cooke said.

When asked whether he would at least confirm that a grand jury will hear evidence in the case, Cooke responded: "No, I can't. That's the nature of the proceeding. I couldn't comment on any case."

More to come.
