Schaffhausen sentencing set for July 15; Lawmakers demand UW tuition freeze; more state news
Convicted killer Aaron Schaffhausen will be sentenced next July. He pleaded guilty last month to killing his three daughters in River Falls, but had claimed his mental state meant he wasn't responsible. A jury disagreed.
Each of the three counts of first-degree intentional homicide carries a life sentence. The judge will decide whether they are to be served consecutively or concurrently and whether he will be eligible for parole in 20 or more years.
