Jury: Hudson, Wis., dad responsible in killing 3 daughters
HUDSON, Wis. (AP) — Jurors in western Wisconsin say a father had a mental defect but is still responsible for killing his three young daughters last July.
Aaron Schaffhausen pleaded guilty last month to three counts of first-degree intentional homicide in the deaths of 11-year-old Amara, 8-year-old Sophie and 5-year-old Cecilia. But he argued he was not responsible because of a mental illness.
Jurors deliberated for about 3½ hours before reaching their verdict.
