LANSING (WKZO) -- Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, Attorney General Bill Schuette and Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy have announced that state aid will help process thousands of untested rape kits in the City of Detroit.

In 2009, the state discovered over eleven-thousand untested kits in Wayne County.  The governor says four-million dollars will be provided to have those kits tested.

The money will come from settlement money paid to the state and held by the AG's office.
