A western Wisconsin house where a father murdered his three young daughters has now been dismantled.

The Associated Press confirms that crews have finished taking down the River Falls home where prosecutors say Aaron Schaffhausen killed 11-year-old Amara, 8-year-old Sophie and 5-year-old Cecilia to get back at his ex-wife. Schaffhausen was sentenced in July to life in prison with no chance of parole.

KARE-TV reports some cleanup remains, but the lot that stood under the house soon will be put up for sale.

Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union held the note on the home. The credit union decided to dismantle the house and salvage materials that could be donated to Habitat for Humanity.

Proceeds from the lot sale will be donated to a proposed River Falls playground in memory of the girls.
