Chris Watts Blames Kids For Marriage Issues With Shanann Watts | Crime Time

Chris Watts and his wife Shanann

The couple last saw their pregnant daughter over the summer, when she spent six weeks visiting them in North Carolina with her daughters, 4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste. The woman, a co-worker, said Watts told her he and his wife were separating.

Speaking to ABC News, Frank and Sandra Rzucek recalled how energetic and loving their daughter was towards both friends and family.

Watts was sentenced to life in prison for killing his wife Shanann and their daughters 4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste, in their Frederick home on August 13. "But little did we know".

Chris initially pleaded for his family's return and denied any involvement in their disappearance. Shanann was found three days later in a shallow grave, and the girls were found in oil tanks at their father's job.

After those discoveries, Chris Watts changed his story, telling police he had strangled his wife in a fit of rage after seeing her choking their younger daughter, Celeste.

While it may have seemed like the mother of two had the ideal little family, in reality things were quite different as her husband, dubbed a "heartless monster", had started seeing one of his colleagues and wanted to separate from his wife, even searching "marrying your mistress" on Google, Insider reports.

The Rzuceks called Shanann a "phenomenal" mother who would "do anything for her children" and battled lupus for a long time. Watts seemingly killed them all to seek a "fresh start", District Attorney Michael Rourke said at his sentencing.

Authorities announced in December that he had been transferred from a Colorado prison into the Wisconsin Department of Corrections for his own safety, CNN reported.

Watts has been sentenced to multiple life terms without the possibility of parole.
