Watts told police that he strangled his wife when she questioned him about an affair with another woman.
Watts told police he had sex with his wife just hours before that, after she had returned from a work trip.
He then reportedly told his wife he didn’t love her, and according to Watts, Shanann threatened to keep daughters from him.
“You’re never gonna see the kids again,” she told him, according to the report.
Watts told police he put both of his hands around Shanann’s neck and strangled her at their home in August, according to the report.
“Every time I think about it, I’m just like, did I know I was going to do that before I got on top of her?” he told investigators, according to the report. “It just felt like there was already something in my mind that was implanted that I was gonna do it and when I woke up that morning it was gonna happen and I had no control over it.”
Watts reportedly told police that he now regrets killing his wife and two young daughters, saying “Right now I’d have a five-year-old … a three-year-old … and more than likely, a one-month old son … and a beautiful wife … and right now it’s just me.”
