MN double murder suspect will return to Wisconsin to face charges

by

LA CROSSE, WI (WTAQ) - A Minnesota man accused of killing and robbing a camera store owner and his son in La Crosse will return to Wisconsin to face his charges.

39-year-old Jeffrey Lepsch of Dakota agreed to waive extradition Thursday during a court hearing in Winona.

Prosecutors said he shot and killed 56-year-old Paul Petras and his 19-year-old son A.J. on September 15th inside May’s Photo in downtown La Crosse.

Police said they identified Lepsch’s vehicle by looking at the store’s surveillance video – and officers later found 14 stolen items from the shop during a search of his home.

Authorities said he got away with $16,000 in camera equipment during the incident.

Lepsch remains in a Winona jail under a $10 million bond, as authorities arrange his transfer to La Crosse County. A date for his first court appearance on the charges has not been set.

He’s charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide, armed robbery by force, and possessing a firearm as a convicted felon.
