During a police interview from behind bars, Watts said he strangled Shannan after telling her he wanted to separate. He then drove his wife's body to his job site, where he buried her in a shallow grave as his daughters waited in the car, before smothering both of his girls.

He was ultimately found guilty of five counts of first-degree murder, one count of unlawful termination of pregnancy, and three counts of tampering with a dead body.
