    Couldn’t they do a wrongful death suit for each child and shanann? Or is that only if they are found not guilty?

    Where would the settlement come from? I doubt they could sue the parents, CW has nothing, and even the parents don't seem to be wealthy.

    Ohhh. Hmmm, well what about for causing them emotional distress or something of that nature? Is a Protective Order From Abuse used only for physical contact or can it apply to verbal as well?

    I have to doubt that they've consulted an attorney because if they had, surely that letter would never have been sent. Unless they just plain chose to ignore the legal advice they received. If that is the case, it was a very poor decision.

    I don't think CW has admitted what he's done, just based on the DA's statement when he was asked about allocution, that they wouldn't get the truth out of him (paraphrased). MOO

    Thanks.

    Hmm. Mother Watts said that they or she thought Shan'ann had taken the girls and left him. I do wonder if there's more we don't know, like he told his dad that police weren't buying his changing stories.

    I was just referring to the threat of suing the Watts for libel on behalf of Shanann.
    I have no idea about wrongful death suits but it sounds like a good idea, except he has no funds available to sue for, does he ?

    Maybe everyone is just trying to find an excuse or reason for her behavior.

    Or written a letter directly to him. If he doesn't reply then they have their answer.

    I'm pretty sure Mrs.Watts wasn't there, as others have posted, but I'd bet if CW had wanted her there, she'd have been there, IMO. Besides, who knows what they talked about on the phone before his arrest, if they talked.

    Bottom line: CW has agreed to a plea deal where he will plead guilty to murdering all 4 of his family and will serve LWOP per the terms of the deal, as posted in this and previous threads. He's an adult. His parents have no say in the legal proceedings.

    If the Judge tears CW to threads, we will then probably have another chapter with CW's mother, running down the Justice system.
    Already she states the Defence Lawyers are at fault, then we may possibly hear about all the errors of the sentencing, that she feels occurred.
    MOO.

    “Mother Watts”...reminds me of the movie Psycho for some reason.

    It's almost like... like... his family is almost as good as CW at making up harebrained, totally implausible stories full of giant holes to try to create the insinuation that Shanann deserved to die. :rolleyes:

    Which I don't see any excuse for. Evil, nasty heartless behavior. Trashing a dead pregnant woman. NO EXCUSES.

    If I was that interviewer, my very next question would have been, “Why didn’t he?”

    Agree - and as for the letter, IIRC, there was a dangling participle in there, too.

    Oh i doubt they would ever get any monetary gain from it- but they might get answers as to exactly what happened etc. but i do not see them doing that. They want this all behind them and to never see him again. IMO

    Hopefully Mr Judge will tell CW in no uncertain words how abhorrent his attempts were to put the unthinkable murders of the children on the pregnant wife he had also murdered. Thus slapping the parents in the process.

    Yea i doubt there is any money to be made- not that Shan’ann’s family wants that but jist more charges- maybe some answers. But JMO but i dount they do anything like that. I think they just want all of this behind them and never to hear from him again.

    I think CW and and SW were mismatched. SW was full of ambition and fire and CW wasn’t. CW was a 9 to 5 kind of guy, SW was an entrepreneur who wanted to shoot the moon. CW was laid back, SW was full of energy and wanted to go, go, go. I think SW pushed CW to keep up with her, but he didn’t have what she had, and he couldn’t. I can see where he thought she was saying he wasn’t good enough, and I can see where she thought he was lazy and undisciplined. I can see where CW might have interpreted her criticisms as abuse. I’m sure they both annoyed the Hell out of each other. He went looking outside of his marriage for sex and companionship, and he destroyed it, and all of SW’s dreams. I think the showdown happened that night, but I can’t figure out why he would kill her and the children. Why not just leave? All I can come up with is that she said something awful to him that made him feel like a worthless spot on the floor, and he became enraged. But why kill Bella and CeCe? I sure hope the DA provides us with the answers.
