New details emerge about death of pregnant woman, daughters


ABC News

We’re learning more about the death of a pregnant Frederick woman and her two daughters.

New court documents show Shanann Watts was found buried in a shallow grave last week and the bodies of her daughters, 4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste, had been submerged in crude oil for days before they were found.

This comes as Christopher Watts’ defense attorneys asked a judge for specific DNA testing to be done on the girls bodies, but the judge denied the request.

Formal charges are expected Monday against Watts.
