Alleged Deer Hunter Killer in Court This Week

By  | 

The man accused of killing six deer hunters in northwestern Wisconsin has another a court appointment this week in Hayward.

Chai Soua Vang, from St. Paul, Minnesota, faces six counts of murder in the November 21st shootings, which started after a dispute over a tree stand on private property in southern Sawyer County. Six Rice Lake area residents were killed and two wounded in the shooting spree. Vang was not wounded.

Vang's preliminary hearing is set for Wednesday to determine if there is enough evidence for a trial.

The 36-year-old remains in the Sawyer County jail on a two-point-five (m) million dollar bond.

WEAU-TV 13 News plans to carry the court hearing live beginning at 9:00am on Wednesday morning, December 29th.
