Funeral service held for Colorado woman and 2 daughters allegedly killed by husband

More than two weeks after their bodies were found near an oil worksite in Colorado, Shanann Watts and her two young daughters were finally laid to rest Saturday morning.

Family members of the pregnant Colorado mother, 34, and her two children, 4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste, gathered to mourn at their funeral service in Shanann’s home state of North Carolina.

“Shanann was a woman of love, she loved God, she loved her family and she loved her friends,” the pastor at the funeral said, according to Fox 31. He also said of the two young girls that they were filled with life and joy "and shared it with those they encountered.”

The woman’s husband, 33-year-old Christopher Watts, was charged last month with the killings despite speaking about missing his family in interviews with television stations shortly before his arrest.
