Man seeks new trial after conviction for killing La Crosse business man, son

LA CROSSE, WI (WTAQ) - A 41-year-old man wants a new trial, after he was sent to prison for life for killing a La Crosse camera shop owner and his son.

Jeffrey Lepsch of Dakota Minnesota told a circuit judge that 9 of the 12 jurors in his trial last summer thought he was guilty before the testimony even began.

Lepsch was convicted of killing Paul Petras and his 19-year-old son A.J. in 2012 at May's Photo in downtown La Crosse. Lepsch also stole 27 items of camera equipment valued at $17,000.

He was convicted on two counts of homicide, armed robbery by force, and illegally owning a firearm as a convicted felon.

A hearing date has not been set on the request for a new trial. If the judge turns it down, Lepsch can take his case to a state appeals court.
