Kong Vue Plea In Hougom Murder Later This Week
The man suspected of killing Sara Hougom in her La Crosse apartment last March will have his plea hearing later this week...
Kong Vue is expected to reach a plea agreement before a La Crosse County judge on Thursday. The hearing will come just two weeks after co-defendant Pao Choua Vue pled guilty to being a party to Hougom's murder. When he entered his plea, Pao Vue said that only Kong Vue went into the apartment building on Division Street to commit burglaries. Police say Kong shot Hougom when he found her inside the open apartment as he was trying to steal her purse.
