Colorado dad finally pleads guilty in the murder of his pregnant wife and his two daughters

11 months ago

Chris Watts agreed to admit the charges of killing his pregnant wife, and two daughters, after he kept changing stories since they went missing in last August.

Tuesday, the Colorado man pleaded guilty to all charges against him, charges that included five counts of murder, three counts of tampering with a deceased human body and one count of unlawful termination of pregnancy. He agreed to the guilty plea to be spared the consideration of the death penalty, an agreement approved by the victim's family. The sentencing is scheduled for November 19.

Since the morning of August 13, Watts invented several stories concerning the victims, saying at first that Shanann Watts and her two daughters, Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3, had gone to a friend's house. Later, he claimed that he told them he wanted to separate and left the house. He even used to said" I just want them back'' or "my kids are my life, their smiles light up my life".
