WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) - A preliminary hearing for a man accused in the death and dismemberment of a Minnesota man has been posted for a third time.
Kou Thao was scheduled to appear in Marathon County Circuit Court Friday, but the hearing has been put off again because of a request for another judge.
A criminal complaint says Thao drove from Wausau to Milwaukee in April with the severed head of 58-year-old Tong Pao Hang in the trunk of a car. Other body parts were found in the basement of a Milwaukee home where the car was located.
The 26-year-old Thao is charged with first-degree intentional homicide, hiding a corpse and possession of a firearm by a felon.
The Daily Herald Media says Judge Greg Huber has been assigned to the case. A hearing is rescheduled for Aug. 7.
