Lepsch Will Spend Rest of Life in Prison

(9/3/13) A Minnesota man will spend the rest of his life in prison, for killing a La Crosse camera store owner and his son.

A judge decided today that 40-year-old Jeffrey Lepsch will not get a chance for a supervised release at some point. A jury convicted Lepsch in July of killing 56-year-old Paul Petras and his 19-year-old son A-J at May's Photo in downtown La Crosse last September 15th. Lepsch was also convicted of stealing 17-thousand dollars in camera equipment. Prosecutors said he hoping to sell the equipment to get cash to repay a previous debt, and support his family. Lepsch did not make a statement at today's sentencing hearing. La Crosse County District Attorney Tim Gruenke called the incident "intentional," "thought out," and "calculating."
