Defense attorney discusses Schaffhausen verdict

Posted: Updated:

On Tuesday, a jury rejected the insanity defense in the trial of Aaron Schaffhausen, who admitted to killing his three young daughters last July. Jeff Tamburino, criminal defense attorney, explains why.

Watch the video for more information.

The verdict delivered after 3.5 hours of deliberation found that Schaffhausen did have a mental defect, but they say he did not meet the legal requirement of insanity because he knew what he was doing was wrong.

Schaffhausen will likely spend decades in prison due to the verdict.
