Dr. Oz will air an episode about the Chris Watts murder case at 2 p.m. Tuesday on KOAA 5.

He will interview one of Watts’ neighbors, who provided surveillance video to police, which ended up being used by prosecutors to build the case against Watts.

In a promotional video for the episode, Dr. Oz called it “one of the most deplorable murder cases I’ve ever heard.”

Watts was sentenced to life in prison without parole for the murders of his wife and their two daughters on Nov. 19.

He was arrested the day after coming forward to the media asking for the safe return of his family, claiming he had no idea where they were. He later tried telling police he killed his wife when he caught her choking one of their daughters.

Prosecutors say Watts was having an extramarital affair, and believe he was trying to get away from married life. However, Watts has never told anyone why he committed the murders.

The Watts case, which drew national attention, has also been featured on Dr. Phil and other daytime talk shows.
