Wayne County plans to use $1 million to help investigate rape kits found six years ago in a Detroit police property storage facility.
County Executive Warren Evans announced Tuesday that the money will be allocated to Prosecutor Kym Worthy's 2015-16 budget.
The move has to be approved by county commissioners. The money would come from a delinquent tax fund.
Evans also says space will be provided in the county's Guardian Building in downtown Detroit for investigators and members of the Sexual Assault Kit Task Force.
