Police Arrest Two in Hougom Murder


La Crosse police say two men will be charged for the murder of Sara Hougom at her southside apartment back in March.  They say Kong Vue and Pao Choua Vue--La Crosse men and members of a gang--have been arrested for both the murder of Hougom and for a drive-by shooting on the northside just minutes before the March 26th killing.  Police say Pao Choua Vue was being held in the La Crosse jail for something else.  They just located Kong Vue yesterday in Milwaukee.  They say Kong Vue admitted to both the drive-by shooting on Island street and the shooting of Sara Hougom.   Apparently, the killing of Hougom was a random act.  Her door was open and the two men were simply looking for a purse to steal.
