"Watts provided investigators with additional information about the murders of Shanann, Bella, and Celeste during the interview". The law firm shared new details about the murder with Dr. Phil in an exclusive interview.

The 34-year-old Colorado man confessed the new details to law enforcement during a February 18 prison interview in Wisconsin, according to Thomas Grant, Watt's lawyer, and Lambert, the lawyer for Shanann Watts' parents Frank and Sandy Rzucek.

"He is claiming that he is remorseful, and he has found God", Grant said.

According to CNN, the CBI said a written report and audio file from that interview would be released on Thursday.

Watts grew upset and strangled his wife to death.

"If he was this happy and wanted a new start, get a divorce", Weld County District Attorney Michael Rourke said during Watts' sentencing hearing in November.

"To hear him admit it, is important to them", Grant said.

Lambert, who represents Shan'ann's parents - Frank and Sandy Rzucek - told Dr. Phil that Chris forced his oldest daughter to watch from his truck as he disposed of her mother's body and killed CeCe.

'At that point, Bella says: "Please, daddy, do not do to me what you just did to Cece,"' said Lambert. "And what he said was that "Mommy is sick, we need to take her to the hospital to make her better", Mr Lambert said.

The clip ends as he reveals: "Bella walked in and asked: 'What are you doing to mommy?'" Later, he admitted to loading Shanann's body in to the back floorboard of his truck.

Watts then loaded his wife's body into his truck and told his daughters to get in, according to Lambert.

'He walks over and takes Cece's favorite blanket and smothers her to death. "It was during the process of him trying to dispose of her mother's body".

Prosecutors previously said that Bella fought for her life as Chris Watts strangled her to death. "He went back to the vehicle", Lambert said. "Bella said, 'Please, Daddy, do not do to me what you just did to [Celeste]".

He initially denied claims of killing his family, but moments after having made a public plea for their return, police arrested the 33-year-old from Colorado over their murder.

"There was a struggle from Bella. There were signs that she fought for her life". "Of the things that have been hard for [Shanann's family] to comprehend and to accept in this reality, what happened to Bella in those last moments has been the hardest".

Watts spoke with agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and CBI as well as a member of the Frederick Police Department on February 18, though what exactly was said during that meeting has not yet been shared with the public. The interview with the lawyers aired only on Dr. Phil.

Lambert told CBS Denver he spoke, personally, with Chris Watts several times on the phone. Late previous year, he was sentenced to life in prison without parole for the murders.

In Watts' confession, he didn't disclose what he talked about with the girls during the long drive, Lambert said.

The lawyers said Shan'ann was the only person killed inside the home.
