A DAD has finally pleaded guilty to murdering his pregnant wife and two young children to avoid the death penalty.
Chris Watts, 33, struck the plea deal after slaying Shanann Watts, Celeste, three, and four-year-old Bella at their family home in August.
He sobbed in court as he pleaded guilty to five counts of murder in the first degree, three counts of tampering with a deceased human body, and one count of unlawful termination of a pregnancy.
The request not to seek the death penalty came from Shannan’s family, CBS Denver reports.
Watts had previously denied the charges and even made a tearful TV appeal for his family’s safe return after they were reported missing in Frederick, Colorado.
Shannan’s body was found buried in a shallow grave and the girls had been dumped in oil tanks on the property of Watts’ former employer.
He was arrested the following day and charged with first degree murder and other felony counts in the slayings.
Watts now awaits sentencing on 19 November.
He was previously reported to have “showed no emotion” as he was booked into jail.
One expert later reviewing his infamous TV appeal claimed Watts showed psychopathic traits, including being overtly winsome and charming.
