Pao Choua Vue Admits Limited Role In Sara Hougom Shooting
A murder suspect in La Crosse was supposed to go on trial next week...but he enters a 'guilty' plea instead.
Pao Vue could get 40 years behind bars when he's sentenced in October for his role in the shooting death of Sara Hougom. Pao said in court today that he was the driver who brought Kong Vue to Hougom's La Crosse apartment building to commit a robbery. And he claims he never got out of the car at that address.
Kong Vue has admitted to shooting Hougom when he spotted her in the apartment as he attempted to steal her purse. While in jail, Pao Vue had told other prisoners that he was the actual gunman, instead of Kong Vue.
