Nine years ago, a La Crosse man dying of cancer was attacked in his home by intruders who wanted to steal his medicine.

The intruders were charged with reckless homicide for hastening the man's death, and one of them...Michael Melby...reached a plea agreement and got 30 years in prison. Melby's term was shortened at a later hearing, but last year he asked for yet another hearing, claiming the judge didn't tell him that other charges might affect his sentence. A state appeals court doesn't buy that argument, and is rejecting Melby's appeal. The appeals judges say the circuit court correctly informed Melby about the charges he faced, and how his sentence might be influenced by them.

The man who has been in the La Crosse County jail longer than any other current prisoner will stay there a few more months...

Cain Moss is now scheduled to be tried this June for the drug overdose death of Tony Du Charme in 2011. Jury selection had been set for next Monday, but the D.A.'s office hasn't received certain evidence back from the state crime lab.  Moss was arrested in August of 2011, just after Du Charme's body was found hidden on a hillside.  It's not certain yet whether Christina Lorenz will be called as a witness against Moss. Lorenz is serving prison time for her role in taking drugs with Du Charme the day he died.

Logan Headed To State Mock Trial Tourney

Written by

While much of Wisconsin's population will be cheering on high school basketball teams at state this weekend, a much quieter state contest happens in Madison the day after the WIAA finals conclude.

The state finals of Mock Trial for this year include teams from 12 schools, including La Crosse Logan. Attorney Keith Belzer, one of Logan's coaches, says that since Logan went to state two years ago, Mock Trial has gotten more attention at the north-side school.  Belzer says Central was the leading Mock Trial school in the area until just a few years ago. The state winner will go to Indiana in May for the national finals.
