WAUSAU (WAOW)-- The  case moves forward against the Portage County man accused of killing his estranged girlfriend and two of their children.

Attorneys for Shane Kettner are deciding what if any motions they want the court to consider.

Last month, investigators added a charge of  recklessly endangering the life of a child  to the three counts of murder against Shane Kettner.

That charge, relates to the only surviving child.

In late April,  police went to Kettner's Nelsonville home, where they found he and his 6 month old daughter, overcome by gasoline fumes. Investigators say Kettner poured  the fuel throughout the house.

Kettner's estranged girlfriend and two of their children were found dead in other rooms of the house.

Kettner faces three consecutive life sentences and now another 10 years.. behind bars, if convicted on the charges.
