Chris Watts spent his 39th birthday behind bars on Thursday, May 16, but it didn’t come with any special treatment.

A spokesperson for the Wisconsin Department of Corrections tells PEOPLE that no one incarcerated by the state receives any special privileges and added that Watts had no scheduled visitors.

Watts, who admitted to the 2018 murders of his wife and daughters in 2018, is serving a life sentence at Dodge Correctional Institution in Waupun, Wis.

Though Watts’ crimes occurred in Colorado, where he pleaded guilty to the three murders, he was transferred to Wisconsin in late 2018 due to security reasons, according to a report from KKTV.

Watts strangled his pregnant wife, Shanann, to death in their family home before killing his two daughters, Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3. He dumped their bodies at his company’s job site.

It later came out that Watts was having an affair with a co-worker before the murders, and had told her he and his wife were in the process of a divorce.
