3 Wisconsin sisters killed; dad gets 3 life sentences
Wisconsin police discovered the bodies of 11-year-old Amara Schaffhausen, 8-year-old Sophie Schaffhausen and 5-year-old Cecilia Schaffhausen on July 10, 2012 in the River Falls home the girls shared with their mother. Aaron Schaffhausen, 34, was charged with three counts of first-degree intentional homicide in his daughters' deaths. He pleaded guilty but insane on March 29, 2013. Prosecutors alleged that Schaffhausen killed his daughters to get back at his ex-wife, Jessica, because he was bitter over their divorce and angry because he thought she began seeing another man.
Aarron Schaffhausen was sentenced to multiple life sentences for his crimes on July 15, 2013.
