A man who killed his wife and two young children 27 years ago has reported for jury duty in Milwaukee County.

Keith Kalota was found not guilty by reason of mental disease after stabbing his wife, Debra, his 4-year-old daughter, Constance, and 2-year-old son, Jacob, at their Milwaukee home in 1987. Kalota spent 16 years at the Mendota Mental Health Institute in Madison before he was released.
