A former Springfield woman is mourning the deaths of her three children, allegedly at the hands of her ex-husband.
Police believe Aaron Schaffhausen killed the three girls, ages 11, 9, and 5, during an unscheduled and unsupervised visit with the girls at their home in Wisconsin.
His ex-wife, the former Jessica Stotz, had agreed to the visit, but later received a message from her ex-husband saying he had “harmed” the girls.
Police have not said yet how the girls died, but say there had been other domestic disturbances involving the family.
Aaron Schaffhausen will make a first court appearance later today.
