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.

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.
