Armin Wand III
MADISON, Wis. -

A plea hearing is scheduled for 3 p.m. Friday for an Argyle man accused of starting a fire last September that killed his three children, ages 3, 5 and 7, as well as his unborn child.

Armin Wand was in court earlier this week for a motion hearing ahead of a scheduled trial. He faces four counts of first-degree intentional homicide and one charge each of attempted homicide and arson.

His wife, Sharon Wand, and their 2-year-old daughter survived the fire.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice announced the court hearing a few hours before the hearing in Darlington.
