Watts, who was charged in August with his pregnant wife and daughters' deaths, will face three consecutive life sentences for the murder charges; the rest will be "left to the discretion of the court" when Watts is officially sentenced on November 19, the Weld district attorney previously said.

On Thursday, his mistress, Nichol Kessinger, 30, told the Denver Post that she started dating Watts two months before the murders and said he told her he was in the middle of divorcing his wife.

Kessinger told the Denver Post that she and Watts started having intimate relations in July, and saw each other about five times a week.

Kessinger said she first met Watts at work back in June.

Kessinger recalls finding him "soft-spoken" and attractive, and noticed he wasn't wearing a wedding ring.

"I believed him", she said.

Kessinger said she does not believe that. It also says she approached investigators before he was arrested and she was involved in several police interviews where she told them details of their relationship and what he said about his missing family.

The lies quickly unraveled, but it wasn't until she watched the news that she learned that his wife was pregnant. At 3:45 p.m. that day, she said Watts called her and said that his wife had taken off with his kids, but seemed eerily calm.

Reading the news, she became even more confused when she realised journalists were outside his house, and she was horrified to learn he was still married to a woman who was 15 weeks pregnant. "I thought, 'If he was able to lie to me and hide something that big, what else was he lying about?'"

She said she confronted him about his family's disappearance, and he showed little emotion during the exchange.

"It got to a point that he was telling me so many lies that I eventually told him that I did not want to speak to him again until his family was found", she said.

Kessinger called the Weld County Sheriff's Office and met with FBI investigators.

"I just wanted to help". "With a pregnant woman and two children missing, I was going to do anything that I could".

On Monday, a family friend wrote a letter to Kopcow to complain that the Watts family had been denied access to him since his August 15 arrest.

The bodies of Shan'ann and her daughters were found shortly after, on the grounds of the oil field where Watts and Kessinger worked.

According to court documents, an investigation determined that Watts, who was sacked from his job at Anadarko Petroleum on the day of his arrest, "was actively involved in an affair with a co-worker".

The next day, Kessinger visited with authorities to file a report on her limited knowledge of Watts' mistruths.

They started seeing each other four or five times a week, but Kessinger said she insisted they take it slow as his daughters adjusted to the split. "He lied about everything". He pleaded guilty on November 6 to all nine counts against him, including five counts of first-degree murder, three counts of tampering with a deceased human body, and one count of unlawful termination of a pregnancy.
