A man identified as Christopher Watts has confessed to been responsible for the death of his pregnant wife and their two children.
The Culprit had initially denied the tragic event which happened in August this year,but he might be spending the rest of his life in prison.
The deceased Shanann, 34, and their two daughters Celeste, three, and Bella, four, were found dead in August in oil tanks days after he reported them missing and also made a fewtelevision appearances pleading for them to come home.
Shanann was found in a shallow grave in a crude oil field where her husband worked. She was 15 weeks pregnant with a baby boy.
The plea deal was approved by Shanann’s family who told the district attorney they did not want to end his life as he did their daughter’s and grandchildren’s.
They did not speak after the hearing on Tuesday but watched somberly as the DA announced the outcome of the hearing.
