One of the two men charged in a triple murder in La Crosse has cut a deal with prosecutors.
Khamthaneth Rattanasack pleaded guilty yesterday to being a party to the Crime of 1st Degree Intentional Homicide. The deal means Rattanasack will face a mandatory 20 years in prison, as opposed to a mandatory life sentence. Rattanasack testified against the other suspect in the case, Nya Thao, but his case ended with a hung jury. Rattanasack and Thao are accused of shooting and killing three men at a La Crosse-area rock quarry as part of a drug deal gone bad.
