HUDSON, Wis. (AP) — A judge has ordered a man convicted of killing his three daughters to pay more than $25,000 in restitution and court costs.

St. Croix County Circuit Judge Howard Cameron ruled Friday that Aaron Schaffhausen must pay more than $14,000 in restitution to Jessica Peterson. The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports the money would compensate her for an emergency room visit the day of the killings, counseling and lost wages.

The judge also ordered him to pay more than $10,000 for witness costs.

Schaffhausen is serving a life sentence for killing his three girls at their home in River Falls in western Wisconsin in July 2012.

Schaffhausen is not currently working in prison, and prosecutor Gary Freyberg says it remains to be seen if Schaffhausen will ever pay the money in full.
