Man Pleads In Throat-Slashing Death

KSAL StaffAugust 25, 2013

A 25-year-old man has pleaded guilty in the slaying of another man who was held down as his throat was slashed.

The Wichita Eagle reports Caesar K. Louis pleaded guilty Friday to second-degree murder, aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary in the Aug. 4, 2012, death of Phem Xiong.

Louis, who was scheduled to go on trial Monday on a first-degree murder charge, will be sentenced Oct. 1.

Vat Sana Khamvongsa testified in December he was with Louis and a third man, Jerry Thatch, when they went into Xiong’s home after a night in Wichita’s Old Town. Khamvongsa said Jerry Thatch held Xiong’s feet while Louis cut his throat.

Thatch’s murder trial begins Oct. 15; Khamvongsa is to be sentenced on a lesser charge the same day.
