More than a year after three men were shot to death outside a La Crosse County quarry, one suspect in the murders is still working on his defense before a trial date can be set.
During a court hearing Monday, an attorney for Khamthaneth Rattanasack said a second expert witness is being lined up for the defense.
Rattanasack is accused of ordering the triple murder near West Salem in July of 2021 because, according to the La Crosse County Sheriff, one of them owed Rattanasack $600.
The other suspect, Nya Thao, is already set to go on trial in June. That jury trial is scheduled to last two weeks, and it’s likely the two men will be tried separately.
Rattanasack has a new hearing scheduled in January, before Judge Elliott Levine.
