Jeremy Wand in Lafayette County court

DARLINGTON, Wis. -

Jurors will come from Portage County for the trial of an Argyle man charged with helping his brother kill three of his young children in a house fire.

Lafayette County Judge Thomas Vale says questionnaires for potential jurors were sent last week for the trial of 18-year-old Jeremy Wand. The trial is scheduled for July in Lafayette County. The Wisconsin State Journal reports jurors will be sequestered.

Wand was charged after police said a fire he helped set with Armin Wand killed Armin Wand's three sons and the fetus of Armin Wand's wife, Sharon.
Sharon Wand was badly burned. A 2-year-old daughter, Jessica, also survived the fire.

Armin Wand was sentenced to three consecutive life terms without the possibility of parole in April after he pleaded to lesser charges.
