Just one person shot and killed Sara Hougom at her La Crosse apartment this year...but two men have claimed responsibility.

Partly because of those dueling confessions, Pao Vue and Kong Vue will get separate trials in La Crosse County court. The two are suspected of murdering Hougom during a burglary attempt at a Division Street apartment building. Kong Vue's attorney, Mark Lawton, says an alleged confession by the other suspect would make it hard for the two to be tried together.  Kong Vue is already scheduled to be tried in late August. No date has been set for a Pao Vue trial.

5 Arrested For Breaking Into LaCrosse Speedway

Written by

5 teens from the La Crosse area face some serious prison time after getting caught stealing alot of beer from the La Crosse Speedway Sunday morning. Nineteen year olds Chase Wilker and Joshua Romskog, both of West Salem, and 18 year olds Presley Stemper, Jack Bauman and Tyler Randall, all face 12 years a piece for their role in the thefts. Track Manager, Chuck Deery, installed security cameras at the track this year after finding out someone was stealing from the the track last year. Four of the five are captured on the video stealing what may have been up to 50 cases of beer and assorted alcohol. According to the criminal complaint, the perps had climbed a fence, unscrewed the motion detector light, yanked open the cooler door and made countless trips back and forth from the cooler to their cars parked in the north part of the race track. Some of the alcohol was found at Randall's home on La Crosse Street. All 5 were released on signature bonds.

Health Care Ruling Being Watched In Wisconsin

Written by
(AP) The U.S. Supreme Court's ruling expected Thursday in President Barack Obama's health care overhaul law is unlikely to result in any swift reaction in Wisconsin. Gov. Scott Walker put a stop to implementing health insurance exchanges in January, saying he wanted to wait until after the Supreme Court ruled. Earlier this month Walker went even farther, saying even if the law is upheld he will not do anything until after the elections, hoping that the next president and Congress will repeal it. Republican state lawmakers say they are on board with that approach, even as Democrats and health care advocates say the state needs to move forward with consumer protections and other provisions in the federal law.

Minnesota Talks Voter ID

Written by

(AP) Former Democratic Vice President Walter Mondale and former Republican Gov. Arne Carlson are offering themselves as the public face of a fight against a Minnesota constitutional amendment requiring voters to present photo IDs at the polls. The pair was introduced today as two of four co-chairs of the Our Vote Our Future coalition's campaign against the ballot measure. Voters will decide in November whether to make government-issued photo identification essential to election participation. The advisory committee is decidedly heavy with former Democratic officeholders. But Carlson says he thinks moderate Republicans will turn against the proposed amendment when they delve into uncertainties over implementation costs and logistics.  Mondale told a news conference that he believes the requirement is intended to discourage voting. Supporters argue it's a guard against voter fraud.
