Outside jury to hear case against father accused of setting fire to kill children
A jury from outside Lafayette County will hear the case against an Argyle man accused of killing his children by setting his house on fire.
Jury selection for Armin Wand's trial will be selected in Marathon County Feb. 22.
The State Journal says jurors will be brought to the courthouse in Darlington and sequestered for the duration of the trial.
The 33-year-old father faces four counts of first-degree intentional homicide, attempted homicide and arson. The fire last September killed Wand's three children, ages 3, 5 and 7, as well as his unborn child. His wife, Sharon, and their 2-year-old daughter survived the fire.
Wand's 18-year-old brother, Jeremy Wand, is also charged in the case.
