Former La Crosse city council members Tom Sweeney and Lorraine Decker say they have a councilman willing to ask for reconsideration of a plan to do away with the city council committee of the whole meetings and the public hearings that go with those meetings. Reconsideration vote would come on Thursday.
La Crosse Police say they anticipate more arrests in Get Money Boys gang crimes. Also, they say it's not ususual at all for criminals to target criminals in robberies. Three teens have been arrested for home invasions during which the gang known as Get Money Boys broke into homes and robbed at gunpoint. Police say the victims were largely drug dealers and other criminals.
One year after a La Crosse woman was murdered in a Chicago hotel, the suspect is still waiting to be tried.
Investigators believe Sarai Michaels went to Chicago in October of last year to work as a prostitute, and was stabbed to death in a fight with a man in a hotel room. Christopher Love is charged with murder and soliciting a prostitute. Love claimed that Michaels threatened him with a knife, and he took it away and stabbed her. During a Chicago court hearing last week, a DNA test was ordered for Love. No trial date has been set.
Talks likely to begin soon between developer Don Weber and La Crosse city
