Chris Watts Charged-Charges Read
Michael Rourke/District Attorney: Three counts of murder in the first degree after deliberation. One count naming Shanann Watts. One count naming Bella. One count naming Celeste. Each of those as a class one felony. We also filed two counts of first degree murder of a child under the age of 12 by a person in a position of trust. Obviously you can tell based upon the elements of those in the description that those counts named Bella and Celeste as victims. Those are both also class one felonies. We filed one count of unlawful tampering, excuse me, unlawful termination of a pregnancy in the first degree which is a class 2 felony as a result of Shanann being pregnant at the time of her death. We filed three counts of tampering with a deceased human body each of which is a class 3 felony. Each of which count obviously names Shanann, Bella and Celeste as victims.
