LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - On Friday, The Wisconsin State Supreme Court denied an appeal for a new trial from Jeffrey Lepsch.

Lepsch, now 43, is serving consecutive life terms for the 2012 murders of a father and son at their downtown La Crosse camera store.

Lepsch claimed he did not receive a fair trial because members of the jury were "subjectively and objectively biased."

In an opinion released Friday morning, Justice Shirley Abrahamson wrote "each of Lepsch's claims fails, and that he is not entitled to a new trial. Consequently, we affirm the decision of the court of appeals." 

Lepsch argues his attorneys did not do enough to prevent bias during the jury selection process.
