Father accused of killing family could face death penalty
FREDERICK, Colo. -- It's only been 24 hours since Christopher Watts allegedly confessed to killing his wife and two young children, but prosecutors are building a case against him. Many will be closely watching to see if the Weld County district attorney will seek the death penalty. "It's both a political decision in terms of the ramifications of the voters," criminal defense attorney Chris Decker said. "It's a huge decision financially because it cost an extraordinary amount of money."
