Schaffhausen’s Wife Testifies For Second Day

Thursday, April 4th, 2013 at 12:24 pm

The mother of three girls who were killed by their father in northwestern Wisconsin says she was worried about leaving the children alone in his care.

The Associated Press reports that Jessica Schaffhausen testified for a second day in St. Croix County Circuit Court. Jurors will decide whether her ex-husband, Aaron Schaffhausen, was sane when he killed 11-year-old Amara, 8-year-old Sophie and 5-year-old Cecilia.

Jessica Schaffhausen testified that if left alone in the care of her husband, she worried he would forget to feed them or put them to bed on time.

KSTP reports Schaffhausen said her husband stopped talking to their children in October of 2011 after moving to North Dakota for work, but told the jury that he would call her up to 30 times a day to harass her.
