HUDSON, Wis. (AP) - A Wisconsin judge has set sentencing for July 15 for a man who admitted killing his three daughters in the girls' River Falls home.
Last week a jury found 35-year-old Aaron Schaffhausen was sane when he killed 11-year-old Amara, 8-year-old Sophie and 5-year-old Cecilia last July.
Although jurors agreed Schaffhausen suffered from a mental defect at the time, they found it did not prevent him from knowing what he did was wrong.
The Star Tribune (http://bit.ly/17U1Of5 ) reports Schaffhausen will be sentenced to prison instead of a mental institution.
Schaffhausen faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison for each daughter's death. The judge could decide to make him eligible for extended supervision after he serves at least 20 years, but could also decide he will get no chance at release.
