Two La Crosse County prisoners will be tried for attacking an inmate who allegedly ratted on a murder suspect.

Pao Choua Vue and Houaka Yang are pleading 'not guilty' to the cellblock beating of Lucas Brickl. It was Brickl who told investigators that Pao Vue's cousin bragged in jail about shooting Sara Hougom of La Crosse.  Brickl says two prisoners hit him in the head during the August 14th attack.  One of the suspects claimed he wanted to beat Brickl for being a 'snitch.'

Written by

So how many people could be impacted by the building of a new 2 lane bridge connecting Minnesota and Western Wisconsin? Quite a few says Winona Mayor Jerry Miller. And all for the positive.

The second two lane Highway 43 bridge is being looked at for sometime in 2015 and has support of U.S. Senator, Amy Klobuchar. Miller hopes she can get the ball rolling on construction a year earlier.

Kong Vue Plea In Hougom Murder Later This Week

Written by

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.

The La Crosse County courts may invest more money in modern video technology, to save money over time.

Funding for a video link to connect one La Crosse courtroom and other jails could be included in next year's county budget, according to county administrator Steve O'Malley.

 

Video conferencing in the courtroom is routinely used in some parts of western Wisconsin. O'Malley says all the La Crosse judges would like to have such equipment in their courtrooms, but now they have to share facilities located on another floor.
