Man kills wife after he saw her strangling their daughter (Photos)

 A man has been accused to killing his wife and two daughters.

Chris Watt, age 33, who was charged for murdering his daughters, Bella, 4 and Celeste, 3 and wife, Shanann, who was 15-weeks pregnant with a male child rather claims he killed his wife after witnessing her strangling one of their daughters.

The accused faces 9 felony counts in total: three counts of first-degree murder after deliberation, two counts of first-degree murder when victim is under 12/position of trust, one count of first-degree unlawful termination of a pregnancy, and three counts of tampering with a deceased human body.

According to an arrest affidavit, Watts told police that he killed his wife in a fit of rage after he saw her strangling his daughter Celeste on a baby monitor screen.

It also depicted that he was having an affair and discussed separation with Shanann early last Monday morning and says this drove her to kill her two daughters.

His wife was declared missing on Monday after she missed a doctor's appointment.

The deceased body of Shanann and their two daughters were found on the property of Anadarko Petroleum, one of Colorado's largest oil and gas drillers where Watts worked.
