Jail Inmates Suspected Of Beating 'Snitch' Headed To Trial
Two La Crosse County prisoners will be tried for attacking an inmate who allegedly ratted on a murder suspect.
Pao Choua Vue and Houaka Yang are pleading 'not guilty' to the cellblock beating of Lucas Brickl. It was Brickl who told investigators that Pao Vue's cousin bragged in jail about shooting Sara Hougom of La Crosse. Brickl says two prisoners hit him in the head during the August 14th attack. One of the suspects claimed he wanted to beat Brickl for being a 'snitch.'
