DETROIT (AP) – The Wayne County prosecutor has opened a criminal investigation of the over-budget project to build a new county jail.

Kym Worthy wrote to the county auditor Willie Mayo that information he supplied her led to an investigation of possible fraud in the project.

The county commission voted last week to cancel the construction contracts after County Executive Bob Ficano suggested looking at proposals from developers to buy the site.
