SHEBOYGAN, WI (WTAQ) - A plea deal is being sought on 16 of the 26 charges that a Sheboygan man faces for allegedly torturing his family over several years. 

40-year-old Lao Jin has pleaded not guilty by insanity to all but one of the 26 counts. Monday, Jin pleaded no contest to a firearms-related charge. 

He will not be sentenced on that count until the rest of his case is settled. The plea eliminates one of seven separate trials that Jin had been facing. 

He's accused of whipping, punching, and terrorizing his five children, ages 6 to 14. 

A court hearing in July revealed that the kids were afraid to go to sleep for fear they'd be murdered.

Lin's charges include strangulation and suffocation, reckless endangerment, intimidating victims, and causing mental harm to children. He remains in jail under a $750,000 bond.
