Girls Allegedly Killed by Dad May Have Been Strangled

Frederick woman Shanann Watts, center, and her daughters, 3-year-old Bella, left, and 4-year-old Celeste, are seen in this picture taken from Facebook.

Christopher Watts who was arrested on suspicion of killing his wife and children during his court appearance.

In a second motion, Merson did not ask for DNA of Shanann's throat, but asked for DNA of her hands and nails and the children's hands and nails.

"I have a lot of experience taking samples from dead bodies getting good results after strangulation", Eikelenboom wrote in his recommendation to the defense attorneys.

It wasn't immediately clear if the judge ruled on the motions. Prosecutors will ask a court to unseal the affidavit for Watts' arrest after filing formal charges, which are due by mid-afternoon on Monday, said Krista Henery, a spokeswoman for district attorney Michael Rourke.

A photograph sits amid the tributes as they grow outside the home where Shanann Watts and her daughters, Bella and Celeste, lived in Frederick, Colo.

The woman's body was found on the property of a petroleum and natural gas exploration company, Colorado Bureau of Investigation Director John Camper told reporters Thursday.

Chris Watts reported them as missing after suggesting they went to visit a friend and never returned. "This expert advised that even though the bodies of two of the decedents have been in an oil well filled with crude oil for several days, DNA would still be present", the motion said. Two children's bodies were found "in close proximity to the other body, whom officers strongly believe is Shanann's", authorities said. He's expected to be formally charged by Monday.

He is being held at the Weld County jail, north of Denver. The warrant for his arrest was sealed by a judge.

CNN affiliate KMGH aired video showing Chris Watts' pickup truck being towed from the family's home overnight, as well as investigators removing items from the house in garbage bags.

The killings have shaken the commuter community of Frederick, a former mining town of 13,000 people. I was just diagnosed with lupus and fibro [fibromyalgia] and I felt like my world was crumbling around me! "I just want them to come back". The rest was earned by Shanann Watts, who worked in 2014 at Children's Hospital Colorado.

But he said he became anxious when one of her friends contacted him around noon and said Shanann wasn't responding to messages.

Chris Watts walks into a Weld County courtroom on Thursday. "She wasn't here. The kids weren't here". "It was very vague", he told reporters.

Shanann Watts and her daughters appear to have been killed at their house in Frederick, Colorado, a town of about 8,600 people some 30 miles north of Denver, prosecutors have said. She was also 15 weeks pregnant with a son the couple planned to name Niko, her brother, Frankie Rzucek, posted on Facebook. "May Satan have mercy on his soul".

According to a June 2015 bankruptcy filing, Watts had gotten a job six months earlier as an operator for Andarkco - with his annual salary indicated to be around $61,500 (£48,212).

He said Shanann was planning to go to a friend's house with their daughters and Fox 31 reports that was the last time he heard from her. She lit up every room and was a joy to be around. She was declared "endangered and missing" on Tuesday. "We honor them on this sorrowful day".

Chris Watts worked at Anadarko for an unspecified amount of time but was terminated on August 15, 2018, a spokesperson for the company said. You spoil us with love an attention!

Law enforcement authorities were drawn to consider him a suspect because of his "cavalier" attitude in interactions with the FBI, which has been assisting with the high-priority investigation. "Given that the investigation is ongoing, please direct all questions to law enforcement".
