Photo shop shooter found guilty, sentenced to life


LA CROSSE (WKOW) -- A man accused of killing two people inside a photo shop in La Crosse will spend the rest of his life in prison, with no possibility of getting out.

On Tuesday, a jury found Lepsch guilty in the July shooting deaths of Paul and A.J. Petras.

Lepsch received two life sentences without the possibility of release, and another 30 years in prison for additional charges.

The victims' family and friends did not speak in court, but wrote letters.

An attorney for Lepsch says they will appeal.
