Husband confesses to murder of missing woman, children with NC ties

Later that afternoon, around 12:15 p.m., Watts says that after receiving no response to repeated text messages and phone calls, Shanann's friend Nicole, who had also not been receiving responses from her, showed up at the Watts' home.

Though formal charges have not yet been filed, he could face three charges of murder and three charges of tampering with evidence.

Shanann Watts, who was 15-weeks pregnant, was reported missing on Monday along with her two daughters, Bella, 3, and Celeste, 4.

Shanann Watts and her two daughters, a 3-year-old and a 4-year-old, were reported missing on Monday.

Law enforcement officials say they believe they know where they can find the bodies.

Mr Watts has worked for the company, according to bankruptcy court records, reports the Denver Post.

Christopher Watts told Denver TV station 9News earlier in the week that he was hoping for the safe return of his family.

A judge has ordered a Colorado man accused of killing his pregnant wife and two young daughters held in jail without bail.

But late on Wednesday evening, something in the investigation changed, and police arrested Watts, charging him with the murder of his wife and children, according to a brief statement posted to the town's website.

He said he knew her parents well and had known Shanann since she was a teenager.

The tragic case of Shanann has gripped the nation ever since she went missing on August 13, after returning from a business trip.

She said the two friends were supposed to meet later in the day, but Watts didn't answer her phone.

"I'm surprised that it happened", he said.

"I hope that she's somewhere safe right now with the kids", Watts said.

"The dog makes more noise than them", she said.

The FBI and Colorado Bureau of Investigation joined the investigation Wednesday. "It was tearing me apart last night", he said. She also got to know him, describing him as a loving father and saying she can't understand it.

Shanann came home from the airport after a business trip at around 2 a.m., but didn't specify which day.

Shanann Watts was reported missing by her friend, not by her husband.

"Celeste. She's just a bottle of energy", Chris Watts said.

"Did you guys get into an argument before she left?"

In June, Shannan shared an ultrasound of their unborn third child on Facebook, calling Watts "the best dad us girls could ask for".

Authorities declined to discuss a possible motive in the alleged triple killing during Thursday's news conference, as well as how they believe Shanann Watts and her daughters were killed and whether Christopher Watts has been cooperative with investigators.

It's a stunning reversal for Watts, 33, who was just seen on television begging anyone for help in finding his wife.

"I'll leave it at that". I want them here.
