Christopher Watts, the Colorado man who killed his pregnant wife and their two daughters in August, was sentenced Monday to life in prison without the possibility of parole. You carried them out like trash. If you did, you would not have killed them, you monster. They had all their lives to live. "Life will never be the same". "They both died of smothering".

"Our families have been needlessly broken by the deaths of Bella, Celeste, Nico, and Shan'ann", said his mom, Cindy Watts.

Chris Watts pleaded guilty to all charges. The victims' family agreed to those terms, the district attorney's office added.

"This is perhaps the most inhumane and vicious crime that I have handled out of the thousands of cases I have seen".

"There isn't a day that goes by that I don't cry for my family". They were my whole world. "Why would you do this?"

'I hope you enjoy your new life, it's nothing like the one you had out here. He said he realized something was wrong when Shanann Watts' friend arrived at the couple's home around noon.

He wasn't wearing a wedding ring when they were introduced, and she thought he was attractive, soft-spoken and a good listener, she said. Your children adored you.

Prosecutors have since called Watts' account "a flat-out lie". "This is something we will never get over, and we are united in our grief". "I am still struggling to understand how and why this tragedy occurred".

"Mr. Watts asked us to share this. he is sincerely sorry for all of this", Herold told the judge.

You can watch his reaction to the sentencing here. "Your life is between you and God now, and I pray that he has mercy for you". "I hate what has happened", she said, crying.

'You don't know what love is.

A friend reported them missing in mid-August.

'Let me tell you something, I will think of them every day of my life.

Watts told the station his wife came home from the airport about 2 a.m., and he left for work about 5:15 a.m. "Vanished. Nothing was here", he said.

The girls' bodies were found submerged in an oil tank, on property owned by the company Watts worked for until his arrest.

Watts, stoic except for a brief moment when he wiped an apparently tear-streaked cheek on his shoulder, apologized for the crime through his court-appointed lawyer Kathryn Herold.

Chris Watts declined to speak. "He had a desire for a fresh start".

The 33-year-old will not be eligible for parole. She told investigators that she had been dating him for several weeks, under the impression that he was in the process of finalising a divorce and moving out with his daughters.

"The man seated to my right smothered his daughters", he said, as Watts looked down at his handcuffs, one leg occasionally shaking beneath the table.

Meanwhile, Christopher Watts spoke to local television reporters from the front porch of the family's home in Frederick, a small town on the plains north of Denver where drilling rigs and oil wells surround booming subdivisions.

On November 6, Watts pleaded guilty to nine charges, including three counts of first-degree murder and unlawful termination of a pregnancy.
