LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - The Minnesota man charged in the shootings deaths of a father and son at their photography store in La Crosse has an extradition hearing in Winona County Thursday morning.
39-year-old Jeffrey Lepsch, of Dakota, Minn., was arrested Wednesday near his home. He' expected to appear in Winona County District Court at 11am before Judge Nancy Buytendorp.
Lepsch is charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide in the deaths of 56-year-old Paul Petras and his 19-year-old son, A.J. They were fatally shot at the family's camera shop in La Crosse on Sept. 15.
