The dramatic footage that has now been released shows Chris Watts being cuffed and led away by authorities over the murder of his pregnant wife and two daughters.

The cold-blooded killer was made to face the wall of an interrogation room before being shackled and loaded into the back of a police vehicle. In a bid to avoid the death penalty, Watts pleaded guilty to the murder of Shannan, Celeste, and Bella, The Sun reports.

Watts is seen in the new clip wearing a t-shirt, shorts, and flip-flops as officers cuff him after patting him down and searching his person. "Chris, stand up for me, I'm going to have you face that wall," an officer is heard saying in the background.



 

This is the latest footage in a series of clips, with one showing the moment authorities informed him he had failed a polygraph test, and another of him unperturbed and buying breakfast just hours after the killings.

Chris Watts was seen in a video released last week confessing to his father about killing his pregnant wife. However, he still lay the blame on Shannon for their daughters' deaths.

Watts claimed during an interrogation with the police that he took his daughters home, gave them a bath, fed them dinner, and tucked them into bed. Just a couple of hours later, they were found murdered alongside Shannon, their mother.
