The Colorado man accused of killing his wife and two young daughters once recorded a presentation on healthy relationships and uploaded it to YouTube.

Chris Watts, of Frederick, is facing five charges of murder after he allegedly killed his wife Shanann and their daughters Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3. Watts was given two additional murder charges because the girls are younger than 12. He allegedly hid their bodies at an oil site owned by the company he worked for—Anardarko Petroleum.

The article goes on to state the following:

The video, titled “Communication speech, Relationship Deterioration and Repair”, was uploaded as part of a course he was taking. The video has now been viewed more than 100,000 times. It was uploaded six months before Watts and Shanann got married.

“Sometimes you find your partner no longer attractive physically or in their personality,” Watts said in the presentation. “When you are in a relationship you have to show desire, lust toward your partner. Sometimes when you get married the lust and the desire kind of fall by the wayside a little bit.”

Investigators determined Watts was having an affair with a coworker, despite his denials. He had allegedly told Shanann he wanted to separate, just before the murders occurred.

“Even at the job, you might meet a new person and (it) could strengthen into something else and could weaken the bond you have with the partner you have,” he said in the YouTube video. “You feel that you might be better with someone else that you’ve met.”
