Western Wisconsin Man Who Murdered his Daughters Will Learn His Fate this Summer.Submitted: 04/25/2013
Story By Associated Press

HUDSON - A Western Wisconsin man who murdered his daughters will learn his fate this summer.

A judge has set sentencing for July 15th for Aaron Schaffhausen.

He admitted to killing his three daughters in the girl's River Falls home last July.

Last week a jury found the 35 year old Schaffhausen was sane when he killed 11 year old Amara, 8 year old Sophie and 5 year old Cecilia.

He faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison.

The judge could decide to make him eligible for extended supervision after he serves at least 20 years, but could also decide Schaffhausen will be locked up with no chance of ever getting out.
