River Falls, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) -- A Wisconsin father is now behind bars after he was accused of killing his three daughters.

River Falls Police were called to the man's home after the girls' mother became concerned about their well being.

Inside, officers found the bodies of the three young girls, but the father, Aaron Schaffhausen, was not there.

Schaffhausen turned himself in to authorities about an hour after police arrived on the scene.
