HUDSON, Wis. - Any plea change for Aaron Schaffhausen, the man accused of killing his three daughters in River Falls, will be delayed until a hearing Thursday.

It was believed Schaffhausen would try to change his plea from not guilty to guilty during a motion hearing Wednesday, but that did not happen. Instead prosecutors and the defense team met for several hours behind closed doors.

Neither side would discuss what happened but Gary Freyberg, assistant state attorney general, said he is ready to go to trial plea change or not.

"All I can tell you is that we're prepared to go forward with a full and fair presentation of evidence on the issue of guilt, insanity or both," he said.

Schaffhausen's ex-wife Jessica was also in court Wednesday. The mother of the three victims was extremely composed and sometimes even looked directly at Aaron. His trial is scheduled to start Monday.
