Trial set for man accused of killing fiance's children

EVANSVILLE, IN (WAVE) - An Evansville man accused of setting fire to a house and killing his fiance's two children will go to trial Monday.

Jeffrey Weisheit is accused of killing Alyssa Lynch, 8, and her brother, Caleb Lynch, 5.

Due to media publicity in Evansville, Weisheit will stand trial in Clark County.

Prosecutors said Weisheit gagged the children and duct-taped one of them to a bed before setting fire to the house.

The defense will argue that he suffers from bi-polar disorder and personality disorders.
