Suspected family killer, Chris Watts, asked the judge in his case to keep his prison visitors private, one month after he was accused of murdering his wife and two daughters.

Now, however, his request has been denied.

According to PEOPLE, Judge Marcelo A. Kopcow ruled against a motion from Watts' attorney that requested sheriff's officials be blocked "from disclosing any information" about his jail visits.

After making his decision, Kopcow ordered that the charged criminal's visit logs be reviewed by prosecutors as necessary.

It has not been revealed why Watts' legal team was so adamant on maintaining his visitors secret.

readers know Watts has been held at Colorado's Weld County Jail since August 15, two days after wife Shanann, 34, and daughters Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3, disappeared.

After two days of feigning innocence and appearing on various televised interviews, Watts allegedly confessed to having killed Shanaan in a fit of rage after he saw her murder their young daughters. But investigators said there was no evidence Shanann killed anyone.

Soon, the three bodies were found in an oil site where Watts worked, and he was arrested.
