ST. CROIX COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - The upcoming trial for accused child-killer Aaron Schaffhausen is expected to center more on his mental state than his guilt.

Schaffhausen is charged with three counts of first-degree intentional homicide and one of attempted arson. He is accused of killing his three daughters, ages 5 through 11, at the River Falls home of his ex-wife.

A motions hearing is scheduled for Wednesday with the trial to start a week from Monday.

Neither the prosecution nor the defense has ever suggested any other suspects in the killings.

If Schaffhausen is found guilty and insane, he would be committed to a mental health institution. His attorney says it would be unlikely his client would ever be released.
