HUDSON, Wis. (AP) - The attorney for a North Dakota man charged with killing his three young daughters in Wisconsin says the defense will provide evidence that shows the defendant was delusional and depressed before the girls were slain.
Defense lawyer John Kucinski says Aaron Schaffhausen had been depressed for quite a while and was taking medication. Kucinski tells the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram there were people who were concerned about his abnormal behavior, including his ex-wife who told relatives Schaffhausen had serious problems.
The Minot, N.D., construction worker, who turns 35 Wednesday, is being held in the St. Croix County Jail on $2 million cash bond. A judge on Tuesday ruled there's enough evidence to hold Schaffhausen for trial.
11-year-old Amara, 8-year-old Sophie and 5-year-old Cecilia Schaffhausen were found slain in their River Falls home July 10.
