ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — A special grand seated to look at evidence of perjury surrounding Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner's handling of the Eric Greiten's sex case will meet again later this week.

The court-appointed special prosecutor, Attorney Jerry Carmody, will only confirm that the special grand jury has been hearing testimony from multiple witnesses.  Carmondy won't say how close they are to deciding whether anyone might be charged, or whether Kim Gardner has or will be asked to testify.

KMOX reported Tuesday that the state of Missouri appointed a grand jury to review how Gardner's team handled the case.

In May of last year, St. Louis Police opened an investigation into allegations that Gardner's out-of-state investigator, former FBI agent William Tisaby, lied under oath during a deposition. The grand jury has been reviewing that evidence for weeks.

Gardner herself was accused of suborning perjury, or allowing it to happen, something she's denied. 

It's not clear whether the grand jury is focussed only on Tisaby, or also Gardner.
