Eight months after a well-publicized murder trial in La Crosse, a CBS News program is ready to report on the case.

This week's '48 Hours' episode examines Eric Koula's trial for the 2010 killings of his parents. Reporter Peter Van Sant of CBS interviewed Koula and others for the program, and says Koula's defense was hurt by things like the 'Fixed U' note he wrote to himself and the 9-1-1 call he made to report his parents were dead.  Van Sant recommends that viewers watch Eric Koula's eyes and body language during the interview. The '48 Hours' program will air Saturday night on WKBT.

Koula Murder Case Featured On CBS This Weekend

Written by

A true crime story from La Crosse County gets the TV documentary treatment this weekend...

The '48 Hours' show on CBS this Saturday will feature the Eric Koula murder case. Last June, Koula was found guilty of killing his parents at their Barre Mills home, and a CBS crew covered most of the trial. D-A Tim Gruenke was among the local people interviewed for the program.  He says the case has been very stressful, and having network TV cover the trial may have added some stress for the Koula family.

 

The Koula murders also were the subject of a recent cable crime program, in which actors played some of the real people involved in the case.  The '48 Hours' show will air Saturday at 9 p.m.

It's a plan to save two billion dollars a year...but many customers of the postal service don't like the plan.

The post office has announced it will end most Saturday mail delivery this summer. U-S-P-S spokesman Pete Nowacki in Minneapolis says the effect on La Crosse area post offices has not been calculated, but around the U.S., it could save more than 20,000 jobs.

 

Positions the postal service hopes it won't have to eliminate, if the money can be saved. A decline in 'snail mail' usage and the expense of a federally-mandated pension plan have been cited as reasons for the service cutback.

Are There Minnesota State Pay Raises Coming

Written by

 

(AP) State senators will vote on a new contract for state employees that would give thousands of workers their first raise in years. The contract up for approval Thursday would give thousands of state employees a 2 percent pay hike the first in 3 1/2 years. The contract covers seven different working groups, including the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 5 and the Minnesota Association of Professional Employees.

A Senate and House subcommittee recommended approving the contract last month. The House is expected to vote on the contract sometime next week.

The contract will expire June 30. Negotiations for the next deal just started. Gov. Mark Dayton says he will push to include same-sex domestic partnership benefits in that contract.
