Schaffhausen Gets Life in Prison

Posted: Updated:

HUDSON, Wis. (AP) - A Wisconsin man who killed his three daughters to get back at his ex-wife has been sentenced to life in prison with no parole.

Aaron Schaffhausen was convicted in April of killing his daughters, ages 11, 8 and 5, at their home in River Falls.

The 35-year-old Schaffhausen had admitted killing the girls in July 2012 to get back at his ex-wife, but argued he had a mental defect that kept him from knowing it was wrong.

Life sentences were mandatory in each girl's death, but Schaffhausen had the prospect of supervised release after at least 20 years in prison. That was rejected by St. Croix County Circuit Judge Howard Cameron.
