Assistant Attorney General Gary Freyberg will prosecute Aaron Schaffhausen. The St. Croix district attorney asked for help because of the complexity of the case.

WCCO-TV reports the prosecution plans to file a motion requiring Schaffhausen to attend his preliminary hearing in person, not by video conference as his attorney indicated Schaffhausen would prefer.

Eleven-year-old Amara, 8-year-old Sophie and 5-year-old Cecilia Schaffhausen were killed at their home in River Falls last week.
