Hearing Today In Crawford Co Strangling Case
A judge in Prairie du Chien could decide this afternoon whether Michael Burroughs will be tried for a murder he already confessed to committing.
Burroughs has an evidence hearing in Crawford County court...a standard procedure, leading up to a possible negotiated plea. The Iowa man went to police in Prairie earlier this month, and told them he strangled Shannon Fischer in his apartment in 2006, putting her body in the garbage days later. Area police had spent years searching for Fischer as a missing person.
Arrests Made In School Break In

Ethics Complaint Group Wonders About Pace of Investigation
At this point, no clear sign of when La Crosse's ethics board will meet again. The group has met just once to consider a complaint against mayor Matt Harter regarding possible ethical missteps. June Kjome is at the head of the group who has filed a complaint against the mayor. She's a little frustrated by the snail's pace at which the ethics process is moving. But, Kjome says, that's just how government works sometimes.
