Jury selected in Schaffhausen trial


St. Croix County (WQOW) - A jury has been selected in the Schaffhausen trial.

Aaron Schaffhausen has admitted to killing his three girls in their home in River Falls last summer, but he claims he was insane. A jury will now decide whether it believes that claim.  

Prosecutors say Schaffhausen was bitter over his divorce.

On Monday in St. Croix County, 15 jurors, including three alternates were selected from a pool of more than 100. Nine women and six men were picked.

The jury will hear opening statements Tuesday morning.
