(1/22/13) Trial has been set to start in May for the Minnesota man charged with killing the owner of a La Crosse photography store and his son.

 Jeffrey Lepsch faces two counts of first-degree intentional homicide, one count of armed robbery and one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.  Lepsch has pleaded not guilty.  His trial starts May 6th.  Prosecutors say he killed Paul and A.J. Petras at May's Photo in downtown La Crosse last September.  They say several items stolen from that store were found at the house where Lepsch lived when a search warrant was served in October.  A La Crosse County judge has scheduled May 3rd as the date for jury selection.
