According to his lawyer, the man who has been charged with murder in the deaths of his three daughters was very depressed and taking medication, the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram reports.
"You're going to find people who know that he was behaving abnormally," public defender John Kucinski said in the newspaper. "People are going to say down the road that he was delusional. People will indicate, even the wife told some of the relatives, that there's serious problems going on with Aaron and they don't even realize how serious they are."
Kucinski also said he had grounds to file motions to dismiss the case but did not comment much further.
At a hearing on Tuesday, three witnesses gave testimony – the girls' babysitter, a police officer and a police dispatcher – and a judge ruled there was sufficient evidence to try the case.
