Autopsy results in the Eric Koula murder case are being heard by the jury today.

Information about the deaths of Dennis and Merna Koula could suggest how the shootings took place. Forensic pathologist Lindsay Thomas took part in the autopsies of the Koulas. She believes that Dennis Koula was shot from a distance...contrary to the defense theory that the shots were from handguns at close range.

 

Prosecutors think Eric Koula may have used a rifle from his parents' house to commit the murders. Thomas supports the police conclusion that the shootings occurred late on the afternoon of May 21st, 2010...three days before Eric said he found the bodies.

Need A Job.......Look Technical

Written by

Employers in Wisconsin have had trouble for several years filling skilled positions that include steam-fitters, brick-layers and tool-and-die-makers. Danny Bee with Western Technical College says, yes, they offer those programs.

He also says welders and electricians are also in high demand. A Manpower survey showed that engineers are the second toughest jobs to fill, followed by information technology workers, sales representatives, and accounting staffers.

Are Wisconsin voters fed up with recalls?

Now that state residents have decided to keep Governor Scott Walker in office, Walker and others believe the public wants recalls to become less common. Bill Feehan, Republican candidate for State Senate in La Crosse, says the existing recall law is too outdated for a state with over five million people.

 

Walker had predicted that if he lost, Democrats would be prepared to push for even more recall elections to gain power.

The tape shows the couple's bodies...Dennis in the kitchen, and Merna at her computer. Investigator Fritz Leinfelder read from a written statement by Eric, about finding the bodies.

Carboni To Ride The Coatails Of Motown To DC

Written by

Some students will travel to our nation's capitol this summer...mostly for vacations. But for Rachel Carboni, an 8th grade student at Lincoln Elementary in La Crosse, her trip is not about vacationing...it's about winning a nationwide writing contest. Her statewide winning topic?

An 8th grader writing about the man who discovered The Miracles, The Supremes, Marvin Gaye and The Jackson 5?

Carboni, who plays the guitar, will travel to Washington, DC from June 11th to the 14th. She will present her paper to a panel of judges and answer questions on her topic.

La Crosse area Republicans have not had much to cheer about in recent elections...losing a state Senator in a recall, and seeing Democrats win two open Assembly seats.

But they did plenty of cheering Tuesday night, when Governor Scott Walker soundly fought off a recall 17 months into his term. We were speaking with county G-O-P chair Julian Bradley last night at the Days Hotel on French Island at the moment La Crosse County was counted in the Walker column.

 

Bradley and other party leaders were surprised by how quickly the race was declared in the governor's favor. He thought the vote might be as close as last year's Supreme Court race, which took a couple of days to sort out.
