Kuester ordered to undergo mental evaluation


MADISON (WKOW) -- A Dane County judge ordered a mental evaluation for the man accused of killing three people in Lafayette County.

According to the Wisconsin State Journal, the attorney for Jaren Kuester requested the evaluation and it was approved Monday.

Kuester is charged with killing Gary, Dean and Chloe Thoreson at Gary and Chloe's home in Wiota. 

Kuester's parents have said they asked mental health workers in Waukesha County to detain their son days before the murders, but they were told Kuester didn't meet the criteria.
