A man convicted of killing his pregnant wife and two children in Colorado is in a Wisconsin prison.

"That's the big word - Why?"

"She just couldn't understand why he was so cold", Sandra recalled.

"[Chris] hasn't touched me all week, kissed me, talked to me except for when I'm trying to figure out what is wrong". "The devil comes to you in any shape, size and form and can be transformed into anything". Christopher Watts faces nine charges, including several counts of first-degree murder of his wife Shanann and his two young daughters, 4-year-old Bella, and 3-year-old Celeste.

But when, two days after they were reported missing, the girls' lifeless bodies were found stuffed into oil tanks and their mom's remains were uncovered in a nearby shallow grave, Watts changed his tune and admitted strangling his wife, but only because, he claimed, he saw her abusing Celeste.

"Her dream was to help her entire family", Sandra said.

Inside Edition spoke to "20/20" co-anchor Amy Robach, who interviewed the Rzuceks about their late daughter. "She had her head on his lap, and they were watching TV". He didn't get a drink.

"I'm not going to blame the kids for a disconnection or anything, but yeah, we focus on the kids like, all the time", he told an investigator.

In their first television interview, the parents of American Shan'ann Watts, 34, - the Colorado woman who was killed by her husband, Chris, 33, - have opened up about the kind of person their daughter was.

The agent asked over and over if Chris was positive that she said that, and he repeatedly said yes.
