Schaffhausen found guilty of killing daughters


HUDSON (WKOW) -- Jurors in western Wisconsin convicted a father of killing his three young daughters.

Aaron Schaffhausen pleaded guilty last month to killing the girls in their river falls home, but he argued he was insane.

Jurors accepted that he had a mental defect, but found it didn't keep him from understanding what he was doing was wrong.

Schaffhausen's attorney says he will appeal the verdict.
