A Colorado man arrested in the killing of his pregnant wife and two young daughters committed Tuesday to all charges against him when his wife’s family looked at each other, held each other and sighed.
In exchange for Chris Watts’s debt remark, the death penalty will not be considered, said the Weld County District Attorney Office. The victim’s family agreed on these terms, announced the district law firm.
Wears an orange jumpsuit, shackles and an olive-green bulletproof vest, Watts told the judge that he understood the agreement on prosecution reached with prosecutors. He accused guilty of five degrees of first-degree murder, three bills of manipulation with a deceased body and a count of illegal termination of pregnancy, prosecutors accused.
When the judge read each charge one by one, Watts “owed” asked, his voice sometimes sprung.
In August, Watts initially told reporters that his pregnant wife Shanann Watts, 34, and daughters Celeste, 3 and Bella, 4, disappeared without traces. Shanann was 15 weeks pregnant at the time.
“My children are my life,” he told ABC Denver affiliate KMGH. “I mean, those smiles light up my life.”
Within a few days, Watts and his wife and children were arrested.
His judgment is scheduled for November 19th. The water is brought to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
