A La Crosse County jury could hear from homicide suspect Cain Moss as soon as Wednesday...
The prosecution is expected to rest its case against Moss sometime on Wednesday, and the defense is likely to call him to the stand. Moss is accused of reckless homicide for providing drugs to Anthony DuCharme in 2011, and of trying to hide DuCharme's body after he died suddenly. Testimony began on Tuesday, with La Crosse police describing details of DuCharme's death and the discovery of his body on a hillside. One man previously convicted of helping conceal the corpse also took the witness stand, as did a man who served in the county jail with Moss and claims the defendant confessed to committing the crimes.

La Crosse Police are looking for two individuals that they say were involved with a shooting that took place Sunday. Police were sent to the area of 5th and Winnebago for a report of gun fire and an argument. While enroute additional information was received that there was a female who had sustained a gunshot wound. Officers spoke with the 24 year old female victim inside her vehicle at 5th and Market St. It was discovered that she had sustained a non-life threatening gunshot wound to the lower back. She was immediately transported to Gundersen Hospital where she underwent surgery and is in stable condition.
As part of the investigation La Crosse Police interviewed the victim as well as several other individuals that were present at the time of the incident. Police say there were approximately 15 people present at the time of the shooting however very little reliable information was obtained through police interviews. Police are in the process of obtaining and reviewing video from local businesses as part of the investigation.
Police have identified two people of interest that they would like to speak with: 21 year old Cordero Short with a last known address out of Chicago and 24 year old Terrell Adams out of Illinois.
Due to the lack of consistent and credible information, the La Crosse Police is looking for help from the public.
