Dr. Phil’s second episode about the Watts family murders will air Monday afternoon on KOAA 5.

The first episode, which aired last Tuesday,  focused primarily on Chris Watts’ confession, as told by lawyers for the Rzucek family.

The state released a transcript of Watts’ confession in a Wisconsin prison last Thursday. The confession outlined details about how he killed his pregnant wife and their two daughters in August 2018.

As part of his deal with prosecutors, Watts avoided the death penalty. He was later transferred to the Dodge County Correctional Institute in Wisconsin for his own protection. Watts is serving three life sentences and 84 years for the murders.
