Why has a Winona judge set 10-million dollars bond for the suspect in a La Crosse double murder?
Winona County Attorney Karin Sonneman requested the high bond for Jeffrey Lepsch, because a 10-million bond in Minnesota is equivalent to one million in Wisconsin. Sonneman says Minnesota accepts just 10 per cent of the bail for release in many cases...and she wanted to be sure Lepsch stays behind bars. Lepsch will be back in court on Thursday. It could take a month or two to get him transferred to Wisconsin, to face charges in the May's Photo murders of Paul and A.J. Petras.
Plenty of complaints from the public regarding the La Crosse city council
Bail is set at $10 million for a Minnesota man charged with killing a father and son at their La Crosse photography store. Thirty-nine-year-old Jeffrey Lepsch, of Dakota, Minnesota appeared today 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 October 18th.
Investigators believe Lepsch walked into the downtown La Crosse shop on September 15th and killed 56-year-old Paul Petras and his 19-year-old son, A.J. Petras. Police say Lepsch stole $16 thousand in camera equipment
Lepsch remains in the Winona County Jail.
