Prosecution: Truth served in Schaffhausen case
HUDSON, Wis. (AP) – A prosecutor says the jury that convicted a Wisconsin man of killing his three daughters got it right.
Gary Freyberg says the jury found “the truth of the case” when it rejected an insanity plea from Aaron Schaffhausen.
The 35-year-old carpenter had argued that he had a mental illness that kept him from understanding that it was wrong to kill his girls last July in their River Falls home.
But Freyberg says Schaffhausen told multiple people what he was going to do and then did it.
Schaffhausen’s attorney has said he will appeal Tuesday’s verdict.
