RadarOnline.com readers know Chris Watts, 33, confessed to the murder of wife Shanann Watts, 34, earlier this month. After days of pretending like he had no idea where she and their daughters, Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3, had disappeared to, he finally admitted that he strangled his partner after he saw her killing their young daughters.

Watts claimed that after he told Shanann he wanted a separation, he saw her strangling their young girls to death inside their bedroom. It was then that, in a fury, he allegedly killed her.

Shanann was 15 weeks pregnant with a son.

Soon after Chris' confession, investigators found out the suspected killer was involved in an affair with a coworker—all which reportedly led to the "emotional" conversation he had with Shanann before her death.

As of now, Chris Watts has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder, including two additional first-degree murder charges for causing the death of a child under age 12.
