MADISON (WKOW) – A Minnesota man is set to stand trial in May after being accused of killing a La Crosse photography store owner and his son.
Investigators say Jeffrey Lepsch of Dakota killed Paul Petras and Petras' son, A.J., at May's Photo in downtown La Crosse last September. During an October search, investigators say they recovered multiple items from the store at Lepsch's house.
Lepsch faces two counts of first-degree intentional homicide, one count of armed robbery and one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Authorities said Lepsch has denied involvement in the deaths.
La Crosse County Circuit Judge Ramona Gonzalez has scheduled jury selection for May 3 and the trial is scheduled to begin on May 6.
