Trial on tap for Wis. man in parents' deaths

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- It looks like a struggling West Salem day trader accused of killing his parents is about to head to trial.

Investigators say Eric Koula called police on May 24 of last year to report he had found his parents dead in their town of Barre home.

Prosecutors contend Koula killed them three days earlier. They say he was deep in debt and hoped to profit from their deaths.

Koula has denied any involvement in his parents' death. His trial is scheduled to begin on Dec. 5 in La Crosse. Judge Scott Horne has set one last motions hearing for Tuesday.
