WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU) A hearing for an illegal immigrant accused of killing and dismembering a Minnesota man has been delayed. 26-year-old Kou Tau was supposed to appear in Marathon County court this morning. Instead the case is being assigned to a new judge.
This preliminary hearing has been delayed twice before: once when a new defense lawyer was assigned to the case, and once when judge Lamont Jacobson recused himself. The case is now being transferred from judge Greg Hueber to Michael Moran.
Tau is accused in the death of 58-year-old Tong Pao Hang, whose dismembered body was discovered in April.
