TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A cold case homicide unit could be on the horizon for the Shawnee County District Attorney's office.

DA Chad Taylor is asking commissioners to approve hiring two full-time prosecutors and a part-time investigator to be part of the team.

Information from Monday's agenda shows Taylor estimates the unit will cost $300,000, and can be started by increasing this year's district attorney office budget by $150,000.

The cold case homicide unit would operate for five years, with the goal being to offer every crime victim and their family members justice.
