WINONA, Minn. (KNSI) Bail is set at $10 million for a Minnesota man charged with killing a father and son at their La Crosse, Wisconsin photography store.
Thirty-nine-year-old Jeffrey Lepsch of Dakota appeared Thursday in Winona County court.
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.
