MADISON (AP) -
A judge has ordered a North Dakota construction worker accused of killing his three young daughters to stand trial in Wisconsin.
St. Croix County Circuit Judge Scott Needham says prosecutors presented enough evidence during a preliminary hearing Tuesday to try Aaron Schaffhausen on three counts of first-degree intentional homicide.
Investigators say he showed up July 10 at the River Falls, Wis., home where his ex-wife lived with his daughters, aged 11, 8 and 5. Police say they received a hysterical call from Jessica Schaffhausen, who was not home.
She said her ex-husband told her he had killed their daughters and that she could come home.
Schaffhausen is being held on a $2 million cash bond. His arraignment has been set for Aug. 28.
