RIVER FALLS, Wis. (AP) — The mother of three young girls killed by their father says she’s relieved he has been sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison.

Jessica Schaffhausen tells KSTP-TV she feels safer and more confident now that her ex-husband, Aaron Schaffhausen, has been sentenced to prison with no chance of parole.

Aaron Schaffhausen admitted killing 11-year-old Amara, 8-year-old Sophie and 5-year-old Cecilia at their River Falls home in July 2012 to hurt his ex-wife, but argued he had a mental defect that kept him from knowing it was wrong. A jury found he was sane.

Jessica Schaffhausen says that now she can forget about her ex-husband and focus on living her life to honor her daughters.
