Bond has been set at a half million dollars for a La Crosse man accused of stabbing another man to death early Friday morning. 25-year-old Yeng Moua remains in the Eau Claire County jail on a First Degree Homicide Charge.
Eau Claire Police Lt. Tim Golden says Moua was driving on Clairemont Avenue after midnight, when there was some kind of argument with a passenger in another vehicle. He says the suspect and the victim exited their vehicles, met between the vehicles, and had an exchange that was limited to one man stabbing the other. Golden says Moua then allegedly got back in his vehicle and drove off. 29-year-old Joseph D. Wiesenbeck later died of his injury.
Eau Claire County District Attorney Rich White requested the $500,000 cash bond, citing the seriousness of the crime, Moua's criminal record, and alleged gang activity. There's no indication the two men knew each other.
