Psychiatric exams ordered for man accused of killing daughters


EAU CLAIRE (WKOW) -- A pair of psychiatric exams have been ordered for a man accused of killing his three young daughters.

Aaron Schaffhausen is charged with killing the girls during a visit to their River Falls home in the summer of 2012.

A judge ordered Schaffhausen to have two separate exams before the case goes to trial. He has pleaded not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect. He will be back in court next month.
