Mays Arrest

Written by

La Crosse police say they've arrested Jeffrey Lepsch in the murders of Paul and A.J. Petras at May's photo in downtown La Crosse on September 15th.  More info from police tomorrow.  Lepsch arrested at his home in Dakota, Minnesota this afternoon.  Lepsch was convicted several years ago of stealing tens of thousands of dollars worth of merchandise from the Ace Hardware distribution center when he worked there as a security guard.  He apparently sold much of what he stole over the internet.   Lepsch was still paying restitution for that crime when he was arrested for the Petras murders.

In a few weeks, you'll get to see more than two-and-a-half million Christmas lights, and dozens of specially decorated holiday trees, in La Crosse's Riverside Park.

Rotary Lights begins its 18th year on November 23rd. Pat Stephens, the president of Rotary Lights, says about 40 performing groups are scheduled to entertain this season inside the heated Ice Castle in the park. Stephens says getting to perform indoors is a big incentive for attracting those groups, because just a handful of groups used to volunteer when they only had the option of performing at the park bandshell on cold nights.  The main goal of Rotary Lights is to collect food for area pantries. Over 225-thousand food items were donated just last year.

'I didn't do it, I swear...'

Larry Schaffer said that in a Sparta courtroom yesterday, just before being given a 20-year prison term for the murders of Kale Kvistad and Connie De George. Schaffer's sister, who had been abused by him, has told police she witnessed the shootings 10 years ago. But district attorney Dan Cary says the woman might not have been a reliable witness during a trial.  At sentencing on Tuesday, Larry Schaffer called his sister a 'sociopath' who falsely accused him of the double murder. Judge David Rice says he accepted the plea agreement, because he was confident that Cary had the evidence to convict Schaffer.
