Were Colorado girls strangled? Father’s lawyers requested DNA swabs from children’s necks

She added that Christopher Watts is scheduled to appear in court in person on Tuesday to be read his rights regarding the charges.

Sources told Denver's KMGH-TV that the father may have placed the girls' bodies inside oil and gas tanks on his employer's property in order to prevent passersby by from smelling the corpses.

Authorities said they found the bodies of Watts' pregnant wife, Shanann Watts, 34, and daughters Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3, at a Colorado oil facility Thursday after they were reported missing Monday. Shanann and her children will be dearly missed.

According to a June 2015 bankruptcy filing, Watts had gotten a job six months earlier as an operator for Andarkco - with his annual salary indicated to be around $61,500 (£48,212). The company said Christopher Watts had been employed there, but declined to note when that employment ended.

Frederick Police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and CBI joined other agencies in the three-day search for Shanann Watts, and her daughters Bella and Celeste. The rest was earned by Shanann Watts, who worked in 2014 at Children's Hospital Colorado.

Prosecutors will ask a court to unseal the affidavit for Watts' arrest after filing formal charges, which are due by mid- afternoon on Monday, said Krista Henery, a spokeswoman for district attorney Michael Rourke.

They also had some student loans and medical bills for a total of $70,000 (£54,876) in unsecured claims on top of a sizeable mortgage.

In a disturbing interview conducted by ABC7 Denver, Chris Watts stood on his porch and discussed his missing wife and children (see video, below).

Watts originally explained that they were just ... gone.

Ms Watts' upbeat Facebook and Instagram posts about her daughters, pregnancy and love for her husband have left family and friends searching for answers following the murders. Today, police officials say he confessed to killing his wife and two young daughters.

That expert, Richard Eikelenboom, stated, "I have a lot of experience taking samples from dead bodies getting good results after strangulation".

"This DNA can be retrieved with a double swab technique".

Watts was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of three counts of murder.

Defense attorneys did not say why they made those requests.

Authorities are expected to file charges against Mr Watts, who was sacked from his job on Wednesday, the day he was arrested.

In a second motion, obtained by CNN affiliate KDVR, defense attorneys asked the court to compel the coroner's office to look for DNA under the mother's fingernails and on her hands. I was just diagnosed with lupus and fibro [fibromyalgia] and I felt like my world was crumbling around me!

Watts said he left for work about 5:15 a.m. that day and wasn't concerned when his wife didn't respond to his texts and phone calls, since she'd just returned from out of town. "She wasn't here. The kids weren't here".
