FREDERICK, Colo. - The body of a Colorado woman who was reported missing with her two daughters on Monday was recovered at her husband’s place of work, police said Thursday.
A spokesman for the Frederick police department said they found the body of 34-year-old Shanann Watts three days after she was reported missing. He said they believe they know where the body of her two daughters, 3-year-old Celeste and 4-year-old Bella, may be.
Shannan’s husband Chris Watts, 33, has reportedly admitted to killing her and their two daughters. He is being held in the Weld County Jail on three counts of first-degree murder and three charges of tampering with physical evidence. He is due in court on Thursday afternoon.
Prosecutors said charges could be filed by Monday afternoon.
