A new mug shot of Aaron Schaffhausen has been released as the admitted killer enters the Wisconsin prison system, KARE 11 reports.

The photo, released by the Wisconsin Department of Corrections, was taken July 17.

Schaffhausen was sentenced last week to three consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole last week for murder of his three daughters.

He pleaded guilty to the July 2012 murder of the girls -- 11-year-old Amara, 8-year-old Sophie, and 5-year-old Cecilia -- but his insanity defense was rejected by a jury in April.

Meanwhile, the community of River Falls, Wis., where the girls were murdered, held a rally Saturday in the girls' honor.

WCCO-TV reports that the girls' mother, Jessica, was met by nearly 1,300 supporters at an event to raise funds for the future Tri-Angels Playground in memory of the three girls.

Saturday's run and walk event raised $48,000 for the project.

Not guilty plea entered for Schaffhausen after he stands mute in court

The man accused of killing his three daughters in their River Falls home last month declined to enter a plea at his court appearance Tuesday. A judge then entered a not guilty plea on Aaron Schaffhausen's behalf. The move was somewhat surprising, since prosecutors had expected Schaffhausen to plead not guilty by reason of mental deficiency.
