HUDSON, Wis. -

The father accused of killing his three young daughters at the girls' western Wisconsin home is back in court.

Among the issues expected to be addressed at a hearing for Aaron Schaffhausen in St. Croix County Circuit Court Monday is a videotaped police interrogation and what jurors may or may not be able to see from the 3 1/2-hour interview.

The 35-year-old carpenter from Minot, N.D., is accused of killing 5-year-old Cecilia, 8-year-old Sophie and 11-year-old Amara Schaffhausen at their home in River Falls last July during a visit with his daughters.

The Star Tribune reported the home owned by Schaffhausen where the girls died is now in foreclosure.
