Police: Slaying suspect stole from camera shop


MILWAUKEE (AP) - Bail is set at $10 million for a Winona County man charged with killing a father and son at their La Crosse photography store.

Thirty-9-year-old Jeffrey Lepsch, of Dakota, Minn., appeared Thursday in Winona County court in Minnesota. Lepsch could have waived extradition to Wisconsin, but asked to appear with an attorney.

The judge appointed a public defender and set the next court appearance for Oct. 18.

Investigators believe Lepsch walked into the downtown La Crosse shop on Sept. 15 and killed 56-year-old Paul Petras and his 19-year-old son, A.J. Petras. Police say Lepsch stole $16,000 in camera equipment

Lepsch remains in the Winona County Jail.
