WAUKESHA - A man accused of killing three people in Lafayette County has reportedly been delusional before the murders.

"Demons were following him. His dead puppy was alive, he thought, and being used in dog fights at the humane society. He was God’s chosen one,'" said Ellen Gabler with the Journal Sentinel. "It wasn’t the first time the 31-year-old had become delusional. He had struggled with extreme paranoia, anxiety and delusions for at least 4 years, said his father Jim Kuester."

Ellen Gabler joins us to talk about her article on Kuester's mental state.
