As Sackett trial continues, a look at DA Tim Gruenke's homicide trial experience

The state has rested in the homicide trial of Eric Sackett, who is accused of killing his former girlfriend Erin Somvilai. Homicide cases are not necessarily uncommon in La Crosse County, but it's pretty rare that they head to trial. District Attorney Tim Gruenke has represented the state in six homicide trials during his tenure, according to court records.
