Schaffhausen defaulted on a mortgage he took out last March. That was two months after he and his wife divorced and he moved to North Dakota – and four months before he killed his daughters Amara, Sophie and Cecilia.

Schaffhausen stopped making payments on the mortgage in January 2012, leaving $181,000 unpaid.

He’ll be sentenced July 15. In April a jury rejected his insanity defense. He had earlier pleaded guilty to three counts of first-degree intentional homicide and attempted arson.

Meanwhile, a fundraiser is planned July 20 for a playground in honor of the Schaffhausen children. A motorcycle run will start in River Falls and make several stops, ending with a poker game.
