Lifetime's continuing documentary series Cellmate Secrets (narrated by Angie Harmon) exposes new details in the case of Christopher Watts, the Colorado-based father who in November of 2018 was charged with the murder of his pregnant wife Shanann, but not his daughters Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3. After accepting a plea deal for his wife's and unborn child's murder, he received five life sentences without the possibility of parole. Cellmate Secrets: Chris Watts offers two different viewpoints of Watts: That of Christa Richello, who believes he's innocent, and that of Cheryln Cadle (author of Letters from Christopher: The Tragic Confessions of the Watts Family Murders), to whom Watts would admit killing his whole family. From the day Watts stood on the family porch, pleading for their safe return, Cadle (pictured at top) believed he was guilty, but she never dreamed her interest in the case would lead to his shocking admission. Her intent was to clear Shanann's name after Watts had accused her of killing their children.
