La Crosse Man To Prison For Crash

Written by

A La Crosse man has been sentenced to five years in prison for driving while impaired and causing a crash that killed his 22-year-old girlfriend.

Tyler Deal was sentenced in Marathon County Thursday after the victim's friends and family offered tearful testimony. The 22-year-old Deal lost control of his car and crashed into a utility pole in the town of Spencer in February 2012. Paige Delo, the mother of two young girls, died at the scene. Prosecutors say Deal was under the influence of alcohol and marijuana at the time of the crash.

Delo's father, Scott Delo, told the judge Deal's decision to driving while intoxicated caused unbearable pain for both families affected by the crash.

Deal will also serve nine years of extended supervision.

Protesters Back Again

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Scores of protesters have returned to the Wisconsin Capitol rotunda a day after police launched another crackdown on them.

Protesters have been meeting in the rotunda during the noon hour nearly every day for the last two years to sing anti-Republican songs. On Wednesday police launched a crackdown on them, arresting nearly two dozen of them for not having a permit to gather in the building. The move enraged the group, who feel they're exercising their free speech rights. On Thursday dozens more protesters showed up in the rotunda than Wednesday, many carrying cameras.

Police issued 26 citations for not having a permit, one citation for disorderly conduct, one citation for disorderly conduct/resisting arrest and one for resisting arrest.

A La Crosse courtroom hears from the defendant in the Petras murder case...on video.

On Thursday, the jury viewed a videotaped conversation between a state agent and suspect Jeff Lepsch, who's accused of killing Paul and A.J. Petras last fall at May's Photo in La Crosse. Lepsch was arrested within hours of the recording. On the video, Lepsch asks the agent why investigators waited a month after the murders to accuse him of being involved.  Despite Lepsch's denial of having ever been to the camera shop, the agent suggested that they had security video of him coming and going from the crime scene. Defense attorneys wonder whether the agent was lying to get Lepsch to talk.
