River Falls, WI (WDAY TV) -- A Minot man who has admitted to killing his three daughters goes on trial this week.

Aaron Schaffhausen's admitted to slashing the throats of his three daughters last July in their River Falls, Wisconsin home. Schaffhausen's attorney says his client has a "major depressive order."

Now, a jury will decide his sanity. Prosecutors argue that Schaffhausen knew what he was doing. According to a criminal complaint, he called his ex-wife after the killings saying, "You can come home now because I killed the kids."
