TIMELINE: Schaffhausen Case, from Start to Finish

Updated: 04/16/2013 6:57 PM KSTP.com By: Jennie Olson

A 35-year-old man faces life in prison for killing his three daughters last July at his ex-wife’s home in River Falls, Wis.

After more than three hours of deliberations, a jury found Schaffhausen had a mental disease or defect during the killings of 11-year-old Amara, 8-year-old Sophie, and 5-year-old Cecilia. But Schaffhausen didn't lack the substantial capacity to appreciate the wrongfulness of his conduct or to abide by the law, the jury ruled. The ruling rejected Schaffhausen's insanity defense.
