Why did Chris Watts keep his head bowed when his mother turned to address him in court?

At 01:27 in the clip below, while Cindy Watts is making her statement beside the wooden lectern in court [under the chaperoneship of Denver attorney Jean Powers], she abruptly turns to Watts who is sitting behind her.

 “We love you, and we [turns, sobs] forgive you son.

But he doesn’t look up at her.

Does he blame Cindy for Shan’ann’s July 9th meltdown and for fomenting the early breakdown in their relationship?

  2. I found this to be very sad while I watching the sentencing hearing. I suppose it can be a number of different reasons: guilt, shame, hatred, blame…?

    From the reading I’ve done on this case, it seems CW was much closer to his father. His mother seemed to be very controlling. Maybe that’s why CW took a liking to SW, similar characteristics.
