Prosecutors aim to keep how Colorado mom, girls died secret

Colorado prosecutors want a judge to block release of the autopsy reports of a woman and two young girls found dead at an oil work site, arguing that the cause of their deaths will be “critical evidence” during the trial of the man accused of killing his family. Christopher Watts, 33, was arrested and charged in August with murdering his 34-year-old pregnant wife, Shanann, and their two daughters, 4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste.
