Prosecutors will announce indictments Tuesday against the owner and two associates of a Chicago nightclub and a promoter who ran a dance party there where 21 people died in a Feb. 17 stampede, the Sun-Times reports.

Involuntary manslaughter charges have been approved by a special grand jury that for the past six months has probed the club deaths. The charges carry a sentence range of probation to five years in prison.
