Horrific evidence played in court yesterday in the murder of three young girlsSubmitted: 04/03/2013
Story By Associated Press

HUDSON - Horrific evidence played in court yesterday in the murder of three young Wisconsin girls.

Jurors listened to their mother's pleas on a 911 call to send police to help her daughters.

Jessica Schaffhausen's 911 call began the testimony in her ex-husband's trial.

She said Aaron Schaffhausen called her the day he'd killed their daughters.

She then called police.

Sobbing she told police he'd had history of mental illness and that he'd stopped taking his medication.

But she also said he had stopped drinking, and had told her he was feeling a lot better.

Aaron Schaffhausen admitted to killing his daughters at their River Falls home last July.

He's claiming insanity as a defense.
