Additional testimony in Schaffhausen trial


RIVER FALLS, WI (WXOW) - There is additional testimony in a St. Croix County Court for Aaron Schaffhausen.

Schaffhausen is the man who admitted killing his 3 young girls in their home last summer.

His lawyer is arguing that Schaffhausen was not sane at the time of the killings.

While on the stand, a Schaffhausen co-worker was asked if Schaffhausen ever talked about his children.

Jarrod Klein said "We were at Taco John's, for lunch...we got on the a subject and he had a big smile on his face and he brought up a trip that he went on and there was a few good stories that he'd happily tell before they got divorced. But, there was never any stories after the divorce."

Schaffhausen faces life in prison if convicted. If found not guilty by mental disease, he'll be sent to a mental institution.
