Chris Watts' father, Ronnie Watts, said his son did not tell him the details about the conversation, but Ronnie Watts told ABC News Thursday, "In my heart I know he didn't kill those girls."

Ronnie Watts said his son calls him every night and "knows the Bible inside and out."

"It's over and done with," Ronnie Watts said of the case. "I am confused why they [the investigators] went out there in the first place."

In August, right after the crime, Chris Watts spoke to reporters, saying his wife vanished with his daughters without a trace, leaving her purse and keys at home.

"My kids are my life," he told ABC Denver affiliate KMGH. "I mean, those smiles light up my life."

"When I came home and then walked in the house, nothing. Vanished. Nothing was here," he said.

Within days of the disappearance, Chris Watts was arrested and the bodies of his wife and children were found.

Chris Watts declined to speak at his sentencing but his attorney, Kathryn Harrold, said her client is "devastated" and "is sincerely sorry for all of this."
