Tuesday, December 4th, 2012 at 6:02 am

Monday was a big day in court for the father who’s accused of killing his three young daughters back in July at their mother’s River Falls home. On Monday, there were new developments on whether cameras will be allowed in the courtroom during the proceedings.  A judge ruled that news cameras could not record witness testimony

Aaron Schaffhausen, 35, of Minot, ND is accused of killing his three daughters: 11-year-old Amara, 8-year-old Sophie, and 5-year-old Cecilia. Schaffhausen entered not guilty pleas to the related charges in late August.

The prosecution and defense had argued that having cameras in the courtroom could taint potential jurors.
