"You put up with 3 impatient, demanding women in the house". You spoil us with love an attention! "I love you so much".

A Colorado judge has denied a request by a defense attorney for a man accused of killing his wife and two daughters to require a coroner to collect DNA from the necks of the young girls.

Shannann Watts, 34, and daughters Bella, four, and Celeste, three, vanished on Monday. The girls had been missing since Monday, along with their mother.

According to a June 2015 bankruptcy filing, Christopher Watts had gotten a job six months earlier as an operator for Anadarko, and paystubs indicate his annual salary was about $61,500. That was after they bought their house, an asset valued at $400,000, records show.

Still, they were about $70,000 in debt, most of it from student loans and credit card purchases, according to the filings.

Drew reported from Raleigh, North Carolina.

Shanann Watts was working in a call center at a children's hospital at the time, earning about $18 an hour - more for evenings, weekends or extra shifts she sometimes worked. Frankie Rzucek said his sister planned to name her baby boy Niko.

Mrs Watts posted: "Happy Husband Appreciation Day!" He was sacked on Wednesday, the same day he was arrested, the company said.

In a second motion, Merson did not ask for DNA of Shanann's throat, but asked for DNA of her hands and nails and the children's hands and nails.

Defense attorneys did not say why they made those requests.

Vatican 'shame' on sex abuse report
The Diocese of Erie followed suit by adding five new names to their publicized list of clergy as well as lay men and women. The Vatican has expressed "shame and sorrow" over the grand jury report into widespread sex abuse in Pennsylvania .

The cause of death for each family member is still pending while medical investigators wait on test results, the Frederick Police Department said. The remains of all three victims were found at Anadarko Petroleum oil field where Watts worked until his arrest, the newspaper reported. The document cites an expert who argued that DNA would still be present on the bodies - even though they had been submerged in crude oil for four days before they were found - but that evidence would be lost once the autopsies were performed.

Wednesday night, Chris was arrested on suspicion of three counts of first-degree murder, and three counts of tampering with deceased bodies.

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

Authorities have not revealed a possible motive or other details in the case.

In an interview with 9NEWS on Tuesday, ahead of his arrest, Chris Watts said the disappearance of his wife and daughters was traumatic.
