House where 3 sisters were killed to be auctioned

RIVER FALLS, Wis. (AP) - An auction will be held for the River Falls house where three young sisters were killed by their father.

The foreclosure sale for the Schaffhausen property will be held at the St. Croix County Government Center at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

The home is where 11-year-old Amara, 8-year-old Sophie and 5-year-old Cecilia Schaffhausen were killed by Aaron Schaffhausen last year. He's serving life in prison.

He tried to sell the house after killing the girls, but their mother, Jessica Schaffhausen objected because he would have profited from the sale.

Anyone who buys the house at the auction must have 10% of the winning bid on hand. KSTP-TV says if no one buys the property it goes back to the bank.
